“A slit of light in a monolithic mass: Ara is the contrast between the material and the immaterial that is the basis of every lighting project.”
Ilaria Marelli’s description of the Ara as a “slit of light in a monolithic mass” is a great window into the inspiration employed by Marelli when she set out to create the sleek and commanding Ara. Its body is made of die-cast aluminium, with a rotatable diffuser in Pyrex or polycarbonate in an option of a champagne, anthracite, grey or white.
Loved in both its forms as a wall and a floor lamp, it is recognized immediately as a piece that lends itself to many different aesthetics, making it one of the most versatile and dynamic lights in production today.
