A note about materials
Developing new materials to create high-performance products has become common to the bathroom and kitchen industries, but not so much to lighting. However, change is afoot. Just look at Ballet, a pendant and wall-lamp collection designed by Héctor Serrano for Arturo Alvarez and which uses Simetech, a material that’s made of stainless steel mesh covered with silicone. The result is a highly malleable and mouldable material.
