The Titania Queen Suspension lamp was designed by Paolo Rizzatto and Alberto Meda for the manufacturer Luceplan. This Italian company is a leader in the creation of luxury lighting fixtures; its products have won multiple Red Dot, Compasso d'Oro and Good Design Awards. Paolo Rizzatto was one of the founders of Luceplan. In addition to producing many award-winning designs, he has taught and lectured in Italy, the USA and Russia. Alberto Meda has won the Compasso d'Oro three times, and several of his designs are on display at New York's Museum of Modern Art.
Originally designed in 1989, the Titania Queen Suspension lamp consists of a central lighting element with two wing-like structures to either side, consisting of a series of angled blades which defuse both light and heat. Filters (available as accessories) can be slotted into the lamp to introduce an element of colour. Despite its generous dimensions (16 x 54 x 140 cm), the lamp is surprisingly lightweight thanks to its stamped aluminium construction, and its counterweighted suspension allows it to be adjusted into various positions smoothly and gracefully. Ethereal and futuristic, it makes a marvellous centrepiece for offices, lobbies and hallways with high ceilings.
