Null Vector displays a full combination of optical and mechanical performance. Null Vector conveys full synthesis between optical and mechanical performance. The aluminium body is both a structural and an optical component for light. The whole frame is generated from the progressive expansion of an individual perforating and shearing mould. This matrix has a perforated pattern that performs three functions: luminous, perceptive, and mechanical. While on one hand it originates from a carefully studied calculation of light emission in space, translated into a graphic element that supports the experienced perception, on the other it is a result of surpassing the limits posed by the material processing technology. From the matrix to the individual element that, disassembled or reassembled in turn, generates paradoxically countless systems, yet simple and easy to understand. The low-voltage LED optical system, also with progressive powers and flows, forms a solid block with the body by means of three 120° transparent pins that allow free light flow and grow gradually in size according to the appliance’s dimension. The multi-faceted frame generates a magic light effect evoking the product’s simplicity and lightness. On request, greater light diffusion and homogeneity can be obtained by means of a glazed diffuser.
