Equilibrio lamp

Italian studio Olive Lab has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to officially launch its Equilibrio lamp, where light is a result of gravity, balance and magnetic attraction.

The two young Italian designers Giulia Liverani and Marco Signoretto from Olive Lab have recently launched a kickstarter campaign to crowdfund their Equilibrio lamp, originally designed in 2016, and based on the balance between gravity and magnetic attraction. Only when a perfect balance is achieved, the light will be diffused in the environment.


The simplicity of Equilibrio is achieved thanks to two symmetric tubes. The first is an anodized aluminium tube, which contains LEDs, the second is a sanded plexiglass light diffuser. A ring magnet is placed at the end of each tube. When the two ends are close, the magnetic force is strong enough to challenge gravity, letting the lamp floating in the air, in a constant state of equilibrium. The design follows light and darkness with the two elements being black and white.
