Meda, Rizzatto and Sarfatti took a second look at ceiling lamps, as neglected as they are widespread, in search of an intelligent, elegant solution. Adopting a sober approach, they opted for a die-cast aluminium frame containing an easily assembled and inspectable diffuser. Modular, impermeable, designed to hold various light sources, the Metropoli system received the Compasso d'Oro award in 1994.
This die-cast aluminium lamp with a diffuser made of prismatic glass, provides a pleasant continuity of form between the interior and exterior of constructions.
