A\STUDIO choose granite and wood as main materials for this project, as representative in the Galician architectural tradition. MIKA 350 is a pendant lamp inspired by the “Pallozas” the houses of the ancient Celtic forts that were built in Galicia from 6th century BC.
By turning technique, we get a thin wall of stone that generates two opposite feelings, rigid and heavy stone look and the fragility of the glass due to the thin wall thickness.
What wood brings to MIKA 350 are minimalist lines that transform the object into an element capable of blend into its surroundings.
The name is inspired by one of the three main elements forming the granite (mica, quartz and feldspar) and the diameter of the conical base shape.
MIKA 350 comes in the market through the store Spotlux (www.spotlux.com) in Vigo.
