Maurício Klabin (1952-2000) Designer, photographer and mechanical engineer – Rio de Janeiro – Brazil.
Maurício Klabin’s main concern was to inspire a feeling of wellbeing and protection; more precisely, to give the sensation that one can feel when giving a hug. He chose to create objects which contain and cocoon. His work is characterized by the absence of salient angles, complex requirements or complicated instructions. His projects are at the same time simple and direct. He also fought to impose the idea that design had to be accessible to everybody. In 2006, his main creation, the iconic Eclipse lamp, integrated the permanent collection of the Architecture and Design’s department of the MoMA in New York.

A scheming and attractive lamp. Manufactured from a single plastic band rolled up on it, the structure can be manipulated to change the form and the orientation of the light. The metal arches are equipped with small plastic parts making possible to uphold the lamp in various positions. The Eclipse lamp is delivered in a flat pack, similar to a “pizza box”.
