MEDOUSÊ

Medousê, from ancient greek μέδω, medo, "to protect", is an innovative sonic lamp designed in collaboration by Catellani & Smith and Architettura Sonora

MEDOUSÊ

Composed of two overlapping glass hemispheres, when switched off, the lamp is green, perfectly blurring in the surrounding landscape; when switched on, it turns white, standing as a protector and guardian of the natural world, a "Tutelar light" of landscape. The omnidirectional sound emission spreading from the refined vitreous body through the raised base creates a magic alchemy of Light and Sound, making Medousê a striking and pioneering piece of technology and design, perfectly in line with Architettura Sonora and Catellani & Smith emotional approach to space and landscape.
