”T.U.L.P” is a pendant light designed by architects Katerina Kotzia and Korina Filoxenidou aka K&K Architects for Designer Lights.
The Latin phrase ”Transit umbra, Lux permanet” is engraved on its surface. It means ”Shadow passes, Light remains” and it inspires optimism and positivity.
The light has a triangular shape and is made out of a combination of #mahogany #plywood and engraved #silvernickel sheets. Its dimensions are 37x35x12cm. Mahogany is for our childhood memories. The wood comes from one of the designers’ childhood closet that sometimes served as her secret hiding place. Silver Nickel (alpacca) is a soft, yet strong alloy of three metals, copper, nickel and zinc. It has the ability to maintain its brightness and thus it symbolizes the bright side of life, the sunny days ahead.
