This design is inspired by a handful of damaged industrial lights found on the floor of an empty warehouse, which had fallen from the roof. Named for the warehouse, Block 2 features a geometric timber frame that encases a classic aluminium industrial light shade.
The unique icosahedron frame allows the light to be positioned on one of 20 bases, providing versatile and playful arrangements in any location. The light is neither a pendant nor a conventional floor lamp, and the objects can be grouped or stacked in countless ways.
The frame is made up of timber struts held with colour-matched custom aluminium brackets and Chicago screws. The spun aluminium shades are made to replicate the original found shade come in 4 colours: red, blue, black and white.
Working with Edra from the start, Italian designer Francesco Binfaré has produced some of the brand's classics, including the recent Pack and Chiara sofa.
