BASIC TWELVE is a concrete modular magnetic lamp, intended for single use or multiple items combination. Concrete is treated as a plastic material resulting in a ultra-thin shell. 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 position to direct light where one wishes. Like refrigerator magnets, Basic TWELVE lamp 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, gold neodymium magnets and brass logo. Cable: textile cable with brass lamp holder, with CE certification.

How Its Made
All Plato Design products are designed and handmade in Italy. We love to merge clear design and functional innovation. What makes Basic TWELVE lamp special is the concrete ultra-thin shell that is only 6 mm wide on the peaks and the eighteen golden magnets embedded into the concrete. The super-strong neodymium magnets let you fix the concrete lamp to each metal surface you have at home or to another lamp. The 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 textile cable and the brass lamp holder are custom made for our lamps in Tuscany, a few kilometers from our workshop in Rome.
