BASIC TWELVE DUO is a couple of magnetic lamps. They can be used attached together or as single elements. BASIC TWELVE DUO is the perfect lamp for a couple of night tables in the bedroom. The lamp is composed of one concrete module and one beechwood module. Both concrete and wood are treated as a plastic material resulting in two dodecahedron-shaped ultra-thin shells. The result is an astonishing object with its essentiality, at the same time flexible and customizable, designed to meet changing needs. HOW IT WORKS Each lamp has three magnetized sides. Thanks to the magnets two or more lamps can be connected together. Once attached, the lamps can rotate in different positions to direct light where one wishes. Like refrigerator magnets, Basic TWELVE lamps can be fixed to any metallic surface such as bookcases, fridges, shelves and tables. HOW IT IS MADE Each lamp is handmade in Italy. We meticulously check the quality of materials to offer a reliable and durable product. It is composed of two parts: the lampshade and the cable. Lampshade materials: ultra-thin concrete / beechwood, gold neodymium magnets and brass logo. Cable: textile cable with brass lamp holder, with CE certification.

Hoe Het Gemaakt Is
All Plato Design products are designed and handmade in Italy. We love to merge clear design and functional innovation. What makes Basic TWELVE DUO lamp special is the concrete ultra-thin shell that is only 6 mm wide on the peaks, the solid beechwood and the eighteen golden magnets. The super-strong neodymium magnets let you fix the concrete lamp to each metal surface you have at home or to another lamp. The concrete production process starts with the creation of the mold, done by hand with the help of 3d printing technology. Then all the inserts – the golden magnets and the brass logo – are included into the mold. Finally we pour concrete. After a few days the shell is ready to be polished and put in the cardboard box with the lamp holder. The wood production process starts with beechwood selection. After CNC cutting, it is assembled by hand and polished with a natural benzene-free hardwax-oil. Then all the inserts – the golden magnets and the brass logo – are fixed to the solid wood. The textile cables and the brass lamp holder are custom made for our lamps in Tuscany, a few kilometers from our workshop in Rome.
