The Volta is an innovative linear suspension lamp that takes state of the art technology and compacts it into a simple form and user experience. The lamp floats on two cables that both power the light and suspend it. The Volta can also rotate 360 degrees around these cords to create uplight, downlight or any angle in between. The lamp also subtly houses the dimmer on the end of its body for easy access. It can be hung parallel to the floor, slightly tilted—or in groups to give it a completely different look, from professional to whimsical.

Dare. The story Leucos tells to contemporary times is a long, vital and interesting one. A story which began in the sixties calling into question the historical relation between shape and material: it was a revolution. The protagonist was glass, taken away for the first time from the traditional logics of glass art and reinterpreted in an absolutely new way. Taking into consideration the tradition, of course, but also looking at innovative materials and technologies, and reconsidering serial production as an added value to design: the repetition became a multiplication of beauty, and the accessibility an opportunity to offer resources to the creative process.
