Joana created the first Marietta two years ago, a very personal interpretation of the classic industrial suspended lamps that lit most factories in Europe in the early twentieth century. The Marietta lamp is contemporary, decorative, warm, and enveloping. The original Marietta is clearly an indoor light but Joana wanted to adapt it for outdoor settings. To do so, the Outdoor version is made from white polyethylene, with which she imitated the texture and wave-like form of the ribbon-shade in the original design.
In Bover we have been working for years with the idea of contributing in the improvement of space; trying to solve the lighting needs in the most natural way that, as users, we consider to be the most relevant. We are interested in the constant search for timelessness as a concept and at the same time, we try to maintain a balance between trends and the material culture that surrounds and influences us. That soft and discreet line that separates and positions us in front of the others and makes us feel different when we enter our homes, our favorite spaces. In short, in our world.
