BUOY LIGHTS

LUCAS ZITO

Graduated from the Design Academy of Eindhoven in the Netherlands and then re-established in France since 2019, Lucas Zito is a designer whose practice focuses on an in-depth study of ecological and recyclable materials combined with new technologies.

 

His work is specialized in the design of lights through 3D printing with plastic produced from corn starch, manufactured in Europe.

 

His approach concerns both aesthetics and functionality, in the most eco-responsible way possible and the perspectives of his practice evolve according to his social environment as well as his convictions.

The lamps of the Buoy series are entirely designed and made in Paris, unique and assembled by hand.

 

Buoy comes from the word buoyancy, it means the force which, around an object immersed in a liquid or gas, is opposed to that of gravity. This is the principle of flotation.

 

Like buoys at sea, these lights are erected, floating, light and weighted.

Extremely light, they reminds us that it is possible to create large objects while using as little material as possible.
 
For example, one of the largest lamps, 320 cm high, weighs only 8923 grams.
Of these 8923 grams, only 3483 grams of plastic were used. The interest of 3D printing is to be able to control at any time the stage of production and to use only the strictly necessary.

 

This series of lamps has a high versatility in terms of type of lights, and may be available in various versions.

A desk or floor lamp, small or large, on mains or on rechargeable battery, in vertical or horizontal suspension, the lamps of the Buoy series adapt to the use but also to the space in which they are in.

In an apartment, in a hotel, in an office or as a scenographic composition, the possibilities are endless.

The lamps can made at precise dimensions. From 30cm to 700cm high, ranging from 30cm to 100cm in diameter.
