01 product description
Plass – a name bringing "plastic" and "glass" together – interprets the artisan tradition of glass by means of a contemporary material and process: rotational-moulded transparent polycarbonate. Thanks to this technology, which is used for the first time on such a large scale in the lighting industry, the finishes are characterized by slight irregularities, highlighted by the light source, like in handmade glass. Therefore, Plass represents a common thread binding the origins of the designer, who was born on the island of Murano, to his vocation for innovation and experimentation with new materials.
