The form of the Maranga by Christophe Mathieu, an industrial designer hailing from Hamburg, Germany, may be inspired by a fruit, but it is no fruit that any living person besides its creator would be familiar with. That is because it is fictional. The ideal fruit in his mind, the Maranga boasts a squished sphere shape with segments quite like an orange.
Created for Marset, the segments of the Maranga by Christophe Mathieu perfectly allow light to seep through, creating a soft and warm glow for living spaces. The shape itself is also inviting as it provides a comforting circle. The lamp is available in various versions including a pendant, ceiling, table and floor lamp. It also comes in different sizes.
