The suspension lamp designed in 1950 emphasises the innovative, experimental approach of designer. At that time, the favoured material of the lighting industry was glass. But when designer received the first samples of methacrylate in 1949–50, a new polymer plastic that was much stronger and lighter than glass, his experiments led him to a new suspension lamp, Model 2065. As in so many of his designs, he continued to work with different compositions, dimensions and colour variants over the following years.
Model 2065 consists of a diffuser made of two joined opalescent saucers, suspended from the ceiling with a black-painted aluminium canopy. The simplicity of designer elliptical design and the lightness of the materials make for a seemingly weightless luminaire.
