The Zeta Aluminium Lamp revisits the flat-pack, self-assembly design that was so prevalent in the world of furniture a couple of years ago. Although these designs have not necessarily died down, this one is particularly noteworthy. Originally designed in 2011 out of laser cut poplar wood, it has been reissued in a metal material for a sleeker, modern finish.

Designed by ZPSTUDIO, a collective based in Florence, Italy, the Zeta Aluminium Lamp specifically uses Dibond, an industrial aluminum composite made of two pre-painted sheets of 0.012-inch-thick aluminum that sandwich a polyethylene core. Eva Parigi, one of the two founderes, says, "We wanted to further extend the early idea to achieve a more advanced, tech-like version." Lighter and more endurable, they have certainly achieved that ambitious goal.
