Aria Gold is the most recent addition to Zaha Hadid’s Aria family for Slamp, and was released weeks before her untimely passing.She specifically designed this version for her Opus tower in Dubai. The chandelier is a perfect alchemy of 50metalized polycarbonate layers, which radiate around a central LED source. Each of the chandelier’s arm is different from the other, requiring that each piece is almost entirely constructed by hand. The fluidity and dynamism that immediately identify Hadid’s work are reflected in this lavish and lustrous expression of lighting design. The visionary designer’s architectural identity has been carried over to the newest member of the collection, made of the company’s patented polycarbonates, Lentiflex® and Cristalflex®. The 50 layers have been coloured with gold powder through an innovative metallization process. Every Slamp lamp is unique and recognizable thanks to the use of patented technopolymers, which are light, noble and unbreakable, allowing one to create and construct forms, decorations and effects otherwise impossible with other materials. As in any haute couture atelier, the creation of a Slamp lamp follows a precise “ritual” of transformation, through a system of cold cutting, slots and folds executed by hand:a flat sheet of technopolymer becomes three-dimensional volume.Slamp exhibits an evolving passion for artisanal virtue, expertly paired with industrial excellence for 20years.Slamp’s company culture revolves around continuing innovation and conservation through their recyclable, low-impact products.Instead of using paint, the colour is vaporized in an air-tight chamber, using an aluminum bar. The transparent polycarbonate has been fixed electrostatically so the colour is captured in the material, guaranteeing that it will not altered during the cutting and manipulation phases. The 50 plates' transparency amplifies the light, giving every layer an illuminated profile. The result is a luxurious, gleaming chandelier that adapts to an interior, and enhances it.
