The light of this complex, fractal-like pattern with evolving symmetry, shines through over 20 thousand holes.
As the result, the mesmerizing light patterns of this handcrafted lamp cover every surface within the range of the light.
“Cantamen” in Latin means spell, charm, magic sentence; Cantamena also turns on its charm in every room, transforming it into an otherworldly place.
At night it shows its second nature and fills the space with magnetizing, complex light patterns.
Table lamp Cantamena reflects the beauty of the symmetry in every detail and at any scale.
The big circles evolve from the top of the lamp according to the same principle. What’s more, they refer to the complex, perforated pattern which surrounds them.
This unique lamp is covered by exactly 20,042 holes in 18 different diameters. To achieve the best light effects they had to be drilled precisely in the direction of the light source. Also, the place of every single hole was well-thought-out and marked.
As you can see, the perforation contain dozens of the complex smaller and bigger circles. In fact, there are 321 circles of 43 different types (depending on the size and type of the symmetry).
Cantamena features an elements extremely characteristic for the Calabarte handcrafted table lamps: the spiral base (finished with black jeweler waxed cord) and carved wooden end with the logo burned on it.
Although imitated by many, the shape of the original Calabarte base is one of a kind and its structure is kept as a secret by the artist.
And finally, just have fun…
