This lamp, made emblematic by its extreme formal simplification, is obtained by folding a metal sheet in two points to give it a symmetrical U-shape that acts as a diffuser. The same surface, in some configurations, becomes the fixing support to the wall or ceiling and can lodge possible warnings or numbers. Conceived to be used on a wall, table or ceiling, Armilla produces reflected light thanks to the luminous source that remains fixed between the two metal sheets, hidden from sight. The bulb socket is mounted outside the folded metal sheet and is connected to the power cable while a groove on the second side of the metal sheet enables the insertion of the fixing support.
