Pleat Box, Marset
Designed in collaboration with master ceramicist Xavier Mañosa and Berlin design studio Mashallah, the Pleat Box pendant luminaire superimposes the subtle shape of a digitally designed crease in a piece of fabric onto a handmade ceramic diffuser. The exterior of the diffuser comes in white or terra-cotta—unglazed to show the true color of the potter's clay—or it can be finished with a dark gray glaze made by mixing recycled glazes. The interior finish may be white enamel or 10-karat gold. Pleat Box comes in four sizes—18.5-, 14.2-, 9.4-, and 5.1-inch diameters—and uses a halogen or a fluorescent lamp.
