Inspired by the goddess of the sea and the leader of the fifty Nereides, THETIS, is a floor lamp which reflects the dynamic of the sea god who possessed the gift of prophesy and power to change her shape at will.These extreme curves and angles, which are a typical trait in architectural latest advances have now reached out to furniture design. Generating movement and separating itself from of any former trace of over-rigidness, that floor lamp shapes free, delicate and organic lines.
