The lamp made of black lacquered metal and translucent opal glass was designed by Fabiaan Van Severen in 1990. Produced in the designer's own studio between 1990 and 2005, this lamp, redesigned in 2021, has retained everything from its superb original.
30 years later, the famous Belgian brand Zumi has revived from its ashes the iconic light fixture imagined at the time by Fabiaan Van Severen. Renamed Opale 2.0, the object has lost none of its original design while being the subject of an innovative interpretation. The avowed intention behind this subtle metamorphosis is to arouse the same excitement and enthusiasm with this modern version as three decades ago with the very first model.
If it is revisited here, the luminaire retains its timeless silhouette which has made its excellent reputation and makes it still as topical as ever... Opale 2.0 is equipped with 4 "chip on board" LEDs with very low consumption and a 50 hours and still repairable.
Now, resolutely in keeping with the contemporary era, the luminaire can be controlled wirelessly, via a smartphone thanks to a free application or via a push button using EnOcean technology that does not require any battery. It is possible to integrate the Opale 2.0 into a home automation system. Or when practicality, ecology and aesthetics come together...
Much appreciated by architects, designers and installers, the ZUMI collection stands out for its easy-to-install solutions that can be integrated into new home automation worlds. The Belgian brand offers the lighting market a complete range of luminaires that stand out for their elegance and intelligence.
For having revived an emblematic model that has been upgraded in the contemporary era to display an ever so elegant design in an even smarter mechanism, Zumi obtains the Miaw Design Award 2022 in the "Lighting" category.
