The design of the Zenc is inspired by the water tanks on the roofs of New York City buildings. This is the starting point taken by the author, a contemporary form that refers to industrial aesthetics.
A screen of 44 cm in diameter and 28 cm in height surrounds the light source. On the outside, its texture enriches the volume, and generates surprise, it seems to be made of metal, specifically zinc, a material traditionally linked to industrial deposits. So much so that even the seals protrude. However, it is produced in rotomolded bilayer polyethylene. Its interior is coated with a white layer so that the light bounces, grows and is exceptional. And therein lies the contrast: the outside is available in various colors – blue, gray, white, red, pale pink or pale yellow – while the inside is always white.
A simple design reminiscent of a circular house, an archetype of essential shapes that also work in combination with each other, in different heights and colors, to offer multiple lighting possibilities.
Walking through New York means looking up, wanting to discover where the skyscrapers end. On his last trip to this city, Joan Gaspar was looking around the rooftops of New York and there, when he saw the water tanks, he found the shape of this new proposal. A unique element that is part of the city’s skyline. A sign of identity that has belonged to the company since the beginning of the 19th century and it is surprising not only that they are still there, but also that they are still in place and still perform their function.
