Manta is a molded leather desk lamp. This technique allows to give volume to a material that is usually crafted in two dimensions. Like a second skin, the leather fits the shapes of the aluminum structure, softens the edges and gives the lamp an almost carnal aspect that appeals to touch it. With time, this precious material is marked by a patina, making it a unique object. This lamp was exhibited during the Salone Del Mobile 2017 at the Spazio Orso gallery in Brera and during the Dutch Design Week 2018 at the Club C in Eindhoven.
