About Alaska Big
Alaska Big is a jewel of suspended light. A magical sphere of solid glass with a magnetic and inexplicable appeal. To include it in the interior design is to give it an icon, warm and seductive. Its optical glass globe of great purity encloses a teardrop of light and is a work of craftsmanship that is polished by hand to create a unique piece as a whole.
Its shape and light are a modern reinterpretation, through technology and design, of the classic incandescent filament bulb. Its connection system to the ceiling plane is also an opportunity to express creativity in interior design.
Like the line that separates heaven and earth, Up marks a horizon in space. Its light, projected vertically, evokes a natural glow that penetrates the room. The luminaire bathes the ceiling plane directly, while the environment is illuminated with a comfortable indirect light.
Up stands as a noble piece, a whole made of a single material. With its pronounced slenderness, it elegantly holds a light plate so that the light emanates from. This floor lamp is a rational and sober sculpture, crowned by a luminous aura. Its cylindrical body combines harmony and visual serenity that is transmitted around it.
