A lighting series inspired by nautical instruments.

The Compass family consists of a table, floor, and suspension configuration. Taking inspiration from the aesthetics of maritime navigational tools, it has been conceived in two finishes: polished brass with a white carrera marble base and gunmetal with nero marquina marble.

Freedom of movement

The development of the Compass series has been largely inspired by the gimbal compass. Also known as a Cardan suspension, a gimbal is a pivoting system that allows an object to incline freely in any direction. It has been traditionally used aboard ships to stabilize other navigational tools.

This system has been adapted to the lighting system. The main light head has been placed at the heart of a 3-axis gimbal. This allows the user to turn and position the light in a variety of positions not normally possibly with other lights.
