A.D.A.

As envisioned by the great master, Umberto Riva, the A.D.A. lamp takes shape, as often occurs, from other forms. Then, little-by-little, during the design and engineering stages, it is transformed and, in some regards, simplified, until it achieves its final look, reminiscent of the archetype of a table lamp. Uncomplicated, the lamp’s anatomy is formed by two truncated cones joined by a plate. Its strength derives from the material: tinted fiberglass which, illuminated from within, is translucent and offers a glimpse of the fibers from which it is made, lending texture to the light. The name A.D.A. draws a parallel between the shape of the object and the sound of the word. Made up of two A’s, Ada is the shortest symmetrical feminine name, just as the lamp’s two conical structures are a geometrical play on the same letter.
