This silvergrey and transparent lamp supplies an airy elegance to the home. Four suspension cables anchor the lamp unobstrusively while supplying the power. With the Ierace range, Artemide has achieved combining technological research into light-sources with comfort and beauty.

A new fluorescent light-source that is small yet offers a high output and a warm light, it is ideally shaped to show itself to best advantage in the ethereal lightness of a hanging lamp and in the magic generated by the refraction of the light on the edges of the transparent diffuser. With Ierace, Artemide offers a range suited to placing technological research into light-sources at the service of comfort and beauty. As well as making the form of the lamp light, the 4 suspension cables also supply the power.
