The Dodotri is the most lampshade-like design in The Kocohedron Collection of lamps, which makes it ideal for lighting desks and workbenches. Its wireframe with integrated LED lighting shows three regular pentagonal faces, touching on three edges and one vertex, from where it hangs. As bare a lampshade as ever, The Dodotri is dimmable and therefore suitable for atmospheric as well as technical lighting.
The Greek mathematician
Euclid (ca. 300 BCE), known
as “the father of geometry”,
discovered that the regular pentagon’s diagonals cut each other in ‘extreme and mean
ratio’, more commonly known as ‘the golden ratio’.
