A dazzling new design from Europe’s ‘Poet of Light’
Antoni Arola plays as he designs and designs as he plays. Considered one of the most interesting European designers of his generation, this “poet of light” elevates us with his work to a dimension that transcends the functional. Arola fuses artistic experimentation with research into light.
On the path of essentialist simplicity, Arola presents Lámina. This new suspension light is composed of a line of light pointed upwards towards a thin, curved metal sheet. The result is an elegant luminaire that provides soft and effective diffusion.
Lámina exploits the virtues of reflected light with simple, clean lines in varying shades and sizes, laid bare and fully exposed.
With simple and discernible shapes that conceal nothing and show everything, Lámina offers us a wide variety of uses. On its own, it provides us with a precise diffused light. Used in repetition, it offers impeccable general light for commercial or hospitality spaces.
This pendant lamp fascinates the eye with the elegance of its curve and its soothing light. Indeed, its combination of formal purity and functional virtue elicits emotion. It is a marriage of the poetic and the practical; creating a soft and pleasant light, without glare.
Lámina’s gently curved diffuser is available in three different sizes, each with its own unique character. And you can also choose from among several suspended configurations, each differing in length. Smaller or larger, alone or as a system, Lámina defines and harmonizes spaces. In all cases, Lámina moves us with its elegant play on poetry and reason.

With the highest attention to quality and detail, Santa & Cole subcontracts all of its industrial production to an extensive network of suppliers mainly in Spain. But they also work in other countries such as Japan, where they manufacture the washi paper of their Tekiò lamp.
