The Ray table lamp gives a traditional silhouette a contemporary twist. Created in Rodolfo Dordoni in 2006, the steel tube structure of this modern design is welded, brushed, and chrome-plated, and its diffuser support disk is die-cast, polished, and chrome-plated with Zamak alloy. Ray’s aluminum diffusers, painted white on the inside, are shiny white or black on the outside. a grey colored, blown and overlaid glass diffuser with a glossy external finish is also available. The lamp has a resistive dimmer wired on the cord, offering a 0 – 100% lighting adjustment.
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.
