100% handmade in Italy, Basic TWELVE QUINTET is a modular pendant lamp made of 5 geometric elements that can be combined in several ways thanks to the magnetized sides. You can choose the shape you prefer and make your BASIC TWELVE pendant lamp unique. It is perfect for being suspended on a dining table or in the meeting room. Materials used are essential and contrasting at the same time: only solid wood and natural concrete. The small brass details make the lamp precious. HOW IT WORKS Each module of the pendant lamp has three magnetized sides. Thanks to the magnets two or more modules can be connected together. Once attached, the lamps can rotate in different position to direct light when one wishes. The pendant lamp is fixed to the ceiling thanks to a circular rosette which keeps the five cables together.

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 QUINTET 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.
