Overlay is a collaboration by Slamp and Montblanc that combines handcrafted artisan art with the latest technology. Also referred to as “the perfect writing lamp”, Overlay combines the best of both brands – luxurious apparel, essential aesthetics, and sustainable innovation.
Overlay is now available from Euro Nouveau in South Africa.
This collaborative effort between the two brands was designed by Italian duo, Analogia Project and is essentially a desk lamp that works seamlessly with the iconic Montblanc Meisterstück Le Grand writing instrument.
First launched during the 2017 Salone del Mobile, Overlay is a lamp that turns on when the writing instrument is removed and off again when it is replaced.
Overlay is made up of a brass body and base, topped off by layers of Slamp’s patented materials. The main light source is located in the shade of the lamp which is crafted from brushed copperflex® material. There is also a courtesy light around the circular base of the lamp providing constant illumination of the lamp.
“Montblanc and Slamp both believe that an inspirational design object’s beauty should envelop, creating not only suggestive attraction but positive, non-invasive interaction, qualities that define both of their identities.”
Euro Nouveau presents the work of 12 to 14 hand-selected lighting designers, ranging from classics by Fontana Arte to the quirky pieces of modern Italian brand Slamp. The showroom’s custom design creates a stage for each brand’s work, showing off its unique functionality and style, while seamlessly complementing the other pieces in the space.
