The Ray floor lamp offers a fresh perspective on a traditional shape inspired by lighthouses. In 2006, Rodolfo Dordoni designed the contemporary legs of the elegantly stacked steel tubes that are welded, brushed and chrome-plated. The diffuser support disk is die-cast, polished, and chrome-plated with Zamak alloy. Wired on the cord is a dimmer that allows for optimal diffused lighting adjustment. This lamp ships with a halogen bulb and it is compatible with LED bulbs.
The Ray floor is available in two size models with diffusers available in black or white aluminum, or grey glass. With the black and white finish, diffusers are lathe-shaped aluminum and painted white on the inside. The grey glass diffuser is hand-blown, overlaid glass with a glossy external finish.
As a designer, Rodolfo Dordoni has created a career of collaboration, through designing furniture and objects for the home with a wide array of companies. Born in Milan in 1954, Dordoni graduated with a degree in architecture from Milan Polytechnic. He soon began designing for Artemide, working on their glass collection; eventually becoming their art director. Dordoni then transitioned to working for Cappellini from 1979 - 1989. He has since created lines for or work directly with Cassina, Minotti, Flos, Dornbracht, Fontana Arte, Moroso, Roda, and Venini. In 2005 he created his own architecture firm, Dordoni Archietti, which focuses on architectural planning, interior design, and exhibit design. His work is often considered to be simple and intuitive; much of his design process goes beyond the object itself and focuses on the marketing campaign that will feature the piece or line.
