Rodia

A lamp created to challenge obsolescence. 

2013
Rodia is a table lamp with a very long life cycle, prototyped for less than 15€. The aluminium estructure makes Rodia extremely durable and robust, yet it shows a charming wear over time. It only features standardised mechanical joints, so it is easily repaired with materials found at every hardware store. Many table lamps have the switch inconveniently in the power supply cable but in Rodia is right at the front.

 

 
 


A robust and adjustable structure.

Rodia is built with standardized extruded aluminium profiles that are transformed with simple cutting and bending operations.

 
 
 


Rodia is upfront.

The switch is located right on the front, rather than uncomfortably on the supply cable.

 


Rodia is made to last.

The aluminium exterior is robust and durable whilst showing a charming superficial wear over time.
