Diatom.MGX reflects our interest in the parallels between forms that can be found in nature and mathematical geometries. By interlocking and connecting basic geometrical bodies like the icosaeder and bucky ball, an almost organic and natural object is created, further intensified by a surface structure that originates from the tessellation given by the CAD software.
It uses an energy saving E27 bulb, making it a fully functional room light. Diatom.MGX is made in Epoxy and is produced with 3D printing technology. It is available in two colours – Terra Cotta and Amber. The diameter of the shade is 20cm.
On 12th April 2011 Diatom.MGX was introduced to the public at the Euroluce during the Salone del Mobile in Milan/Italy .
