Musa is a lamp designed by Note Design Studio, in collaboration with VIBIA. This, is another way and opportunity to share insights around the world. From More With Less, we had the chance to be in the presentation event last 20th of September, in Barcelona. In a space called RI-CULTURE, from Francesc Rifé.
VIBIA was founded in 1987, and they work mainly in lightning systems. They are based in a contemporary design, which is related with new technologies. They have the headquarters in Barcelona. And of course, they seek to solve some problems and set the spaces in different ways.
On the other hand, Note Design Studio, is a multidisciplinary studio. Some of the areas work are architecture and product, among other options. It was founded in 2008 by Johannes Carlström, Cristiano Pigazzini, Susanna Wahlin, Kristoffer Fagerström and Daniel Hecksher. They search to create the things that are missing in our daily life. Order the thoughts and the ways to represent things, to find what they are looking for.
Musa is borned in an upside down way. Before thinking about the product, it was analyzed the space. To achieve a sensibility and find the emotions that they want to bring to the user it’s a fact that they look for. Mainly, they started to work with some nature photos. Analyzing colours and textures, representing finally the attitude that this reflected.
“The very same design process provided us with much inspiration, hence its name, Musa.” Note Design Studio
To create Musa, it was based in curved and soft forms. Such as the ones that came from the water and the movement of this. As if it was a beat, but softer. They play in this way with two circles, the one from the lamp form, and the light. In this way, there is an interaction between the light and the base. So in this way it is a reflection, and not the kind of direct light.
In Musa, the tones of the base can be personalized depending on the situation in which the user it is. So, in this way, can be achieved in: white, salmon and grey colours. This will influence a lot the moment of the light reflection. This options has been possible thanks to the experimentation work that has been behind it.
What’s more, Musa it is presented in two different variants: to place it on the table, or hang it on the walls. At the same time, it can be portable, to move it wherever the user wants and change the way that a space looks normally. This allows an independence of the object moving it anywhere.
Ultimately, the process of the product and the work behind, has been reflected in the product. It was a pleasure for us to be invited at the event and experience at first hand the experience of Musa in the environment.
