For the first time, furniture and lighting unite as one. Connect 690 was created by Swiss designer Davide Oppizzi for Manumeta and is illuminated by LG Display OLED Light. As simple as “assemble – magnetise – illuminate”, screws, electrical wires and cables are nowhere to be found, thanks to cutting-edge conductive technology.
Connect 690 is the world-first, ultra-thin furniture unit that lets light flow. With Connect 690, screws, electrical wires and cables are nowhere to be found, thanks to cutting-edge conductive technology. This innovation from Swiss designer Davide Oppizzi demonstrates great technical skill, integrating both the unit’s electrical system and LG Display OLED Light panels into metal that is just 6 millimetres thick. Gold-hued oxidised brass lends warmth to otherwise austere steel contours. Lamps and accessories are placed on the unfinished unit and held securely through magnetic attraction. There’s a touch of sophistication in the interplay between the worlds of materials and numbers and the technological sphere: warmth and cold, lightness and heaviness, brightness and darkness, craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology, femininity and masculinity, 690 and its divisors. Underpinning it all, a complex discretion contained within a 6- millimetre-thick layer of metal that embodies beauty, balance and calm.
