A brilliant architectural lighting idea that changes the way of life.

Eggy – the new LED-technology recessed luminaire by Buzzi & Buzzi, a leading Lombard lighting company, and designed by Stefano Dall’Osso, the brilliant designer, creator of some of the latest most original lighting solutions–is born, proving a vocation, peculiar to the company, that combines engineering and design.

EGGY BUZZI&BUZZI DESIGNED STEFANO DALL’OSSO

A synergy that caused a real revolution in the way we think about and live light. A brilliant idea that, thanks to its egg-shaped form – inspirated by the Fibonacci sequence and the Golden ratio, allows an extremely efficient use in every kind of environment, providing a visionary project interpretation with a strong emotional effect.

Eggy is a recessed luminaire able to fully disappear, made in AirCoral®, a material created and patented by Buzzi & Buzzi: together with the typical characteristics of Coral®, it is not only environment-friendly, but it enshrines anti-bacterial, photo-catalytic and anti-pollution properties. In other words, an egg that illuminates in a never-seen-before way, while purifying the surrounding environment. Moreover, Eggy perfectly integrates inside any architecture and is characterized by an invisible luminous source. A light that becomes a protagonist thanks to its chameleonic properties, which becomes a unique and elegant decorative element thanks to the design by Stefano Dall’Osso. With Eggy, the functionality of a discreet, embracing and well-distributed light meets the emotional element, where the oval shape stands out on the ceiling, creating a visual fascination.

Eggy can be applied to ceilings using a symmetrical ruster, and its oval shape makes it perfect for uses with a random technique, where an “organized disorder” contributes to the enhancement of its visual impact, intensifying the contrast of volumes”. “While creating Eggy”, -says Stefano Dall’Osso– “I tried to visualize a product able to perfectly adapt to contemporary design needs: it can be used to highlight a single detail or, when used on vast volumes, it can improve an environment, playing with light and with the combination of shapes”.

Andrea Buzzi, the owner of the company, tunes in, adding that “with Eggy, we were able to give an architectural answer that aims for simplicity. I’ve always felt a peculiar fascination for the air of mistery that surrounds this particular shape, and thanks to Stefano we were able to draw together classical and modern styles. Being able to blend the results of our technological researches with the knowledge of a design expert is not an everyday situation, and this is why we are so proud of Eggy”.

From a technological point of view, Eggy is equipped with a high-performance COB (Chip on Board) which gives multiple advantages: long-lasting performances, high efficiency, clean light, spot lighting flexible installation, low CO2 emissions and Kw use, and a better comfort with high-quality lighting performances.●
