The Corallo family of lighting will be launched at Euroluce during Il Salone in Milan next month.

Coloured modules can be inserted for contrast. According to Studio Lagranja, “We wanted to project a lamp that was articulated and rich at the same time, starting from a simple module that repeating itself grows just like natural structures, from simplicity to complexity.”

The heart of the Berker Crystal Ball, in turn, is a multi-faceted, polished Swarovski crystal under which a touch-sensitive optical reflection sensor is concealed.
