RADIO LAMP by Jan Bigazzi



Radiolamp is a tribute to the pioneering work carried out during the early twentieth century in the field of civ-il engineering by Vladimir Shukhov: he was the first to use the hyperboloid structure for the construction of his towers, one of which (still existing in Moscow) is known as Radio Tower.

Rescaled and decontextualized objects don’t necessarily have to be Postmodern. The miniaturization of an engineering work seeks to evaluate the potential that a geometric structure can offer in the design of objects for everyday use.


Hyperboloid structures has a 50% higher load bearing capacity compared to conical structures. The Radio Lamp modules can sustain up to 100kg.

The Radio Lamp is easy to handle and assemble.
It has a weight of 5 kg.

The progressive tapering of the modules allows them to be enclosed one inside the other, optimizing the overall dimensions of the packaging.
