Gea Floor Lamp by Arturo Alvarez
Like a tree trunk warped and bent from the wind, the Arturo Alvarez Gea Floor Lamp is a sinuous body characterized by organic curves and lines. The groundbreaking stainless steel mesh developed by Alvarez, SIMETECHA, is enhanced by scintillating and obscured light, conducting an effective yet soft radiance through the stainless steel mesh. The handmade mesh facilitates new modes of expressive and emotional light, adapting to each design like a live material, inviting touch and interpretation. A company marked by excellence in inventive materials, Arturo Alvarez was founded in 1994 in Spain and continues to push the envelope with truly unique lighting solutions. Always in search of new textures and techniques, Arturo Alvarez has taken it upon himself to develop his own materials, which have received high profile awards for innovation. Such ingenuity and hard work resulted in SIMETECHA, a handmade material created with stainless steel mesh that was patented in 2014. By embracing organic forms and cutting-edge technology, Arturo Alvarez strives to create original lighting through constant investigation and discovery.
