Design by Joan Gaspar, 2000.By Marset.
The designer Joan Gaspar has transformed a common bulb into a spotlight, after wrapping it following its outline. Taking its nudity as the starting point, he dresses it up with a transparent material that also gives the lamp the characteristic of lightness. This lamp was awarded with the 2001 Silver Delta ADI FAD. Atlas, a directional spotlight made of transparent polycarbonate and a polyamide base.

Joan Gaspar studied industrial design in the school of Artes y Oficios in Barcelona. In 1988 Gaspar started work for VAPOR S.A manufacturing minimalist lamps. From 1992 he collaborated with a variety of firms to create new product lines: Roca, Resol, Marset, Mobles 114, Perobell, Santa&Cole, DAE, Vilagrasa, and Made Design. From 1996 he collaborated closely with the company Marset Iluminación, developing new products, and product direction for the company.
His work has been selected on a variety of occasions for the awards at FAD. In 1995 he received first prize in the Furniture Competition of the Comunidad Castilla la mancha, and in 2000 Gaspar won the first prize at the Valencia International Furniture Fair. In 2001 the designer was awarded with the Delta de Plata for the Atlas range of lamps, and in 2005 for the Neón de Luz, both designed for Marset Iluminación. Since 1998 Joan Gaspar has given classes in Materials and technology applied to industrial design, at Elisava School of design in Barcelona. In 2002 he opened a professional design Studio in Barcelona working with various companies on new product concepts.
Through the application of technical precision and creativity, Marset constantly aims to discover new functions to provide other uses for their long lasting lamps. This constant quest for new directions, combined with their curiosity and ability to envision the shape of things to come, has led to the pieces in their collection.
Very cool fixture!
Great quality and very clever clean design.

very casual, does not really look like the images on the site
I was expecting a chic Barcelona style product. What is not shown on the site is that there are huge seams down the top and bottom of the fixture, making it look cheap. It would be ok for a kid's room or another very casual application. Some people would like it but the photos are misleading. I wish Ylighting would show realistic photos rather than only the manufacturer's studio shots.
