Overlap is a suspension lamp with diffused light. The internal structure is in painted steel while the diffuser is in Cocoon resin sprayed on the structure, with transparent protection. It all starts in the 1950s during a trip to America. Artur Eisenkeil, founder of Lichtstudio, sees for the first time the "Cocoon" material, a polymer, used as packaging for ships. Eisenkeil comes up with an idea to use this plastic material in an alternative way. Import the material to Italy and meticulously work on his idea: create lampshades. The material is sprayed in a particular way on metal frames, giving life to a new way of conceiving lampshades. In 1959, Dino Gavina, Cesare Cassina, Tobia Scarpa and the Castiglioni brothers saw the Cocoon material for the first time at the Milan fair and immediately realized the enormous design potential of this material. After, the designers moved to Merano to get to know in depth the material to creating new lamps.
This design element fits well in different rooms of the house which can be the kitchen, the living room but is also adaptable to other interior architectural contexts.
