The Kasa by LZF is an elegant and rather curious table lamp designed by Eli Gutierrez. The round wood veneer plate of the lamp has a slightly conical shape that tapers from its edge to a central point.
A mushroom-shaped metal appendage reflects the light onto the plate, which in turn quietly illuminates the surrounding space. An angled metal arm connects the plate to a cylindrical marble base. The LZF Kasa is a decorative lamp with two sides: one is a little playful, the other more thoughtful. The Kasa table lamp is lacquered with ivory white wood veneer on the inside and with natural cherry on the outside. The lamp has a base made of black Marquina marble, and the metal surfaces are in matt black, gold and ivory white.
Eli Gutiérrez is a cosmopolitan designer born in Valencia, Spain. After completing her studies in her hometown, she moved to London to pursue a Masters in Product Design at the Royal College of Art. This move helped her develop a clear and elegant vision for her own design language and sharpened her sense of materials, colours and textures. Following this experience, Eli lived in Milan and Paris, where she worked with Patricia Urquiola, Philippe Starck and India Mahdavi.
In 2016, Eli founded her own multidisciplinary design studio between Paris and Valencia. She defines her cosmopolitan and cross-cultural approach as that of a “citizen of the world”: a detail-oriented explorer and traveller with a contemporary and incisive eye on reshaping the traditional codes of our environment. Eli’s designs contain unique, embedded stories and are often expressed with an eloquent and fresh elegance.
