Diphy by Linea Light Group

A loan from botany, a slight silhouette. A thin white painted aluminum bar houses the LED light source, a clean light fills the screen-printed PMMA diffuser that distributes it downward.

The extreme transparency is in contrast to the brightness of the lamp lit, embellished with a characteristic pattern of laser micro-incisions (OptiLight Technology™).

The pendant versions seem like falling leaves driven by a light breeze.

The free standing lamp has one leaf, large and bright, which connotes the environments.
