Emanuele Ricci

The Limbus is a direct light pendant lamp designed by Emanuele Ricci. It looks like a small luminous planet shining its light downwards.
This lamp is a perfect synthesis of form and function, in which optics, thermodynamics, glass engineering and precision metal working combine to create a pure and essential product in the most authentic Lumina style.

It consists of a glass sphere (ø 12cm) and an aluminium ring that horizontally separates the two hemispheres. Its name, “Limbus”, is Latin for edge, border, confine.

The hemispheres are made of thick Bohemian patterned glass. The bottom hemisphere is the optical component (lens) and protects the light source. It was engineered to produce direct light shining downward at an angle of 60°, enabling the lamp to be looked at in all its magical appeal without the slightest glare outside the cone of light itself.

The top hemisphere is designed to protect the internal components against external agents such as dust and insects.
The central 3-spoke aluminium ring is made in-house using latest generation numerical control (CNC) lathes. It is the Limbus’s key structural element, as it supports and connects all the lamp’s components.
The silicone seals make the body of the lamp impenetrable by external agents.
At the centre of the sphere, the crown-shaped deep-drawn aluminium nucleus perfectly directs the outgoing light and at the same time illuminates Limbus’s glass body.

The nucleus houses the LED (CRI 97), the heat sink (working temperature: 70° C) and the holographic filter, responsible for producing more uniform light.
The nucleus can be accessed for maintenance by simply unscrewing the bottom hemisphere.

Limbus is also available in the following models: Limbus Chandelier x6, Limbus Modular MS, Limbus Modular M and Limbus Modular ML
