Hot Achille is an homage to the work of Achille Castiglioni. In particular, it is a celebration of his Parentesi lamp of 1971, which ran from floor to ceiling and was kept taut by a counter-weight. Hot Achille consists of a freely rotatable aluminum reflector hung on a length of adjustable cable and powered by a counter-weight and electronic transformer with a continuously variable dimmer. Ingo Maurer not only concentrates on the functional nature of light but also the quality of light within a given space. Stainless steel, aluminium reflector with protective glass cover, coaxial cable.
