MVV - Marset lamp

The MVV story begins in the 1970s. This new suspension lamp is a first, and was designed by Manuel Valls Vergés, one of Spain’s most notable architects at the time and partner of Jose Antonio Coderch for 15 years, alongside whom he undertook such prominent projects as the Ugalde house, near Barcelona. The MVV name reflects Vergés’ initials, as a way of displaying his authorship of this unique lamp. That was the desire of his grandson, also an architect, and of his partners in the Two-bo studio. Pablo, María and Alberto rescued this lamp 45 years later.

Marset, acting as a bridge in time, took the original design —an octagon with overlapping sheets— and updated it by giving it a dual skin: cherry wood on the outside of the sheets and a white colour inside to enhance the light quality. The measurements are the same as the original’s —45 cm— and the interior structure, which was originally made of iron, is now polycarbonate, which makes it lighter. Through the use of wood, the MVV yields an exceptionally warm light.

An understated, rational and eminently geometric lamp —the MVV is like a construction site, in which the direct, down-facing light is complemented by indirect light that filters through the sheets. A design that, though timeless, reflects the constructive logic of that period and evokes a great many memories.

Steel and glossy black polycarbonate structure housing 8 sheets of PET with cherry wood on the outside and a white interior. Transparent methacrylate diffuser at the top.
