Boalum - Artemide
table, wall and floor lamp (1970)
Boalum is a table, floor or wall lamp, designed by Livio Castiglioni and Gianfranco Frattini in 1970 for Artemide.
The structure in white flexible and transparent plastic reinforced and resin terminals. The small torpedo lamps are connected in series to each other and spaced from an insulating sphere.
The various elements can be connected in series up to a maximum of 4 pieces for a development of about 8 meters and can be rolled up as desired. Emission of diffused light.
Boalum is an original lamp, which can not be placed in traditional categories. It can be used as a table, floor and wall lamp. Flexible and sinuous as a "snake" can be modeled by varying its shape.
Each fragment is almost 2 meters long and it is possible to connect up to four pieces together. The light is emitted by small torpedo lamps connected in series to each other and spaced by an insulating sphere.
Innovative project where aesthetics and function merge into a harmonious whole, designed to give great freedom of use to the consumer who can choose the length and shape always available to vary according to needs.
Boalum can be used in many different ways, taking various forms, taking advantage of the flexibility and the possibility of inventing sinuous diffused light games.
You can make fun of it by using it on a table, on a wall or on the ground, creating new shapes and even knotting it without problems.
Materials: flexible transparent resin tubular and metal spiral.
