TURN CRAFT Stainless Black / Nero
Nao Tamura
, a special guest of this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan, has designed a reinterpretation of TURN. A sculptural table lamp carved entirely from a single block of stainless steel, TURN CRAFT experiments with original material and color effects. Its extreme formal purity is heightened by its elegant glossy black finish, achieved through a complex steel blackening process, used for the first time by Ambientec, that gives richness and durability to the color. The result is a versatile lamp well-suited for any environment, thanks to its elegant and sophisticated tones and sturdy material. An intriguing sensory contrast comes from the fine hand-stitched Italian leather, also in black, that embraces part of the stem.

TURN CRAFT Brass / Cotto
The brass version of TURN CRAFT brings character to life. The special multi-step coloring process, without clear varnishing, brings shades intended to vary over time to the finish. Its almost nostalgic allure shows the contemporary lines of the lamp in a new context, enhancing the intimate and meditative quality of its light. Here too, part of the stem is covered in hand-finished leather in warm, natural tones.

Xtal Gacrux
The name of the Xtal Gacrux table lamp recalls one of the brightest stars in the Southern Cross constellation. A crystal lampshade with aluminum base is hand-carved in an original pattern, bringing new, magical light refraction effects to Ryuichi Kozeki’s Xtal collection. Like a piece of fine jewelry, the lamp resembles a multifaceted precious stone even when turned off. When turned on, thanks to the biracial LED source that can be tuned to three dimming levels and a mirrored metal reflector developed by Ambientec, it casts light in every direction with a luminous texture that gives the space a dreamlike, ethereal atmosphere.

Both series are wireless, rechargeable, equipped with long-lasting batteries, waterproof (IP66), and ultraresistant to the elements. A perfect synthesis of high-performance technology and fine design, in addition to being ideal decoration and illumination pieces for domestic settings, they are recognized in Japan and internationally as iconic elements for contract spaces.
