Magnetica is a new light fixture designed by Vittorio Venezia and manufactured by LUCE5. Presented at Galleria Rossana Orlandi in Milan, the pendant lamp combines LED technology and permanent magnets. Two bodies have been machined from blocks of solid aluminium — one polished and the other lacquered matte black — supported exclusively by the force of magnetic attraction at their extremities. The constant field of attraction that is generated lends the lamp a sense of lightness, making it susceptible to external vibrations.
