From the industrial shape of a bolt, to beehives found in nature, the hexagon is a perfect shape, capable of bringing to life endless compositions, based on a single polygon. The hex table lamp is the result of a union of two different hexagonal prisms made of perforated sheet – a clear reference to the industrial world- overlapping one another so that the meshes of both items do not cross. This simple idea leads to an optical effect – called moiré pattern - which creates a fascinating play of light.
Designed by the Diesel Creative Team and produced by Foscarini, Hexx is fitted with two light sources and dual switch, to create special ever-changing atmospheres. The upper light source is directed upwards and offers a functional light that shines by reflection, whereas the lower light source generates a magical luminous atmosphere, drawing light patterns on the surface on which it is placed as well as on the walls. There are two finishes available: black, minimalistic and graphic, or green, with a reference to the oxidation of copper and therefore to a both natural and industrial feel.
