There are a shedload of lamps that are launched every year in the market. Some of them merely serve the purpose of producing illumination while others also add to the décor of your house. The Overfly lamp collection by OLEV falls in the latter category and brings grace to your home.
Designed by Italian designer Marc Sadler, the lamp collection comprises four versions namely Overfly, Overfly Track 48V, Overfly Plus and Overfly Plus PL. I’ll be focusing more on the Overfly in the article and talk very little about its counterpart.
As evident from the name, Overfly is an elegant suspension lamp featuring a disc and a small upper cylindrical tube. The cylindrical tube carries the current and also holds the pendant light upright, while the disc is responsible for emitting light and projecting a powerful downward light beam.
OLEV mentions that there are criss-cross knurled engravings embellished on the lower disc that create refined reflections of light. One can also observe the same knurled engraving in the small, upper cylinder. The cylindrical elements boast what OLEV calls a ‘ton sur ton’ color. Available in three color temperatures 2700 K / 3000 K / 4000 K, it delivers 1875 lm / 1971 lm / 2070 lm of light.
Overall, it is made of lightweight elements like aluminum and Plexiglass. The Overfly lamp seems to be floating in air and could be a wonderful addition to your kitchen. In my person opinion, it would rather be good if you have these compact floating lights suspended over your dining table.
Marc Sadler, the designer behind the creation states, “Overfly is a collection that uses the consolidated know-how born from the collaboration with OLEV started a few years ago. It is a good example of optimization of production processes.”
