Stellated icosahedron

The stellated icosahedron is one of the four polyhedra of Kepler-Poinsot. Also called Great Icosahedron is formed by 20 pyramids with equilateral triangular base and is therefore a regular solid. Its shape definitely reminds the glow of a star and despite the ‘tips’ the roundness is quite pronounced. The wooden construction of this fascinating solid is relatively simple thanks to the fact that the pyramids that make it up are equilateral. We make this lamp in oak. However, custom order is available.

Ganimede

Truncated octahedron

The truncated octahedron is one of the thirteen Archimedean polyhedra, obtained by truncating the cusps of the regular octahedron. It has 14 regular faces, of which 8 are hexagonal and 6 are square. According to the “Kelvin conjecture” the truncated octahedron is the ideal geometric figure to fill a three-dimensional space. Ganimede is the lamp that gave birth to Fulcro, the first realization. The inspiration comes from a geometric lamp seen in Los Angeles. After trying to replicate it, unfortunately without remembering its shape, the desire for a beautiful and elegant object remained.

Tritone

Great stellated dodecahedron

A Kepler- Poinsot polyhedron, the great stellated dodecahedron is a highly complex solid.
The complexity is given by the arbitrary choice I have to make when drawing the length of the two identical sides of the triangles that constitute the pentagonal pyramids. There are no rules here and the possibilities in terms of height of the pyramids and consequent angles are infinite. This generates a solid that will in fact be unique. Unlike most other solids I make this one has the peculiarity of leaving me some choice as to what the finished object will be.
I have not yet counted the cuts involved in this make but I know it’s around 2000!

I make this in oak but I’ll be out soon with some spray painted ones.

Trapped

Double truncated octahedron

The ash wood lamp is ‘trapped’ inside a walnut wood lamp. The smaller lamp inside can be turned around which results in a change of the shadows patterns that the lamp casts on the wall and ceiling.

Specifications

• Wires and lampholders per standards of EU/US
• Electrical included 110v/220v
• Dimensions (WxDxH): 32cm/13″ by 32cm/13″ height 29cm/11″
• Max wattage 60W per incandescent bulbs (it is preferable to use led light bulbs)
• Bulb not included
• Custom order available
• Made in Italy

Albiorix

Dodecahedron

The dodecahedron had been missing for some time from Fulcro’ s collection. Possibly the most common of the Platonic solids, the dodecahedron stands out for its perfect symmetry. We decided to start off with a classic all natural ash.

Specifications

• Wires and lampholders per standards of US/EU
• Bulb e26/e27
• Dimensions (WxDxH): 34x34x28 cm
• Max wattage 60W per incandescent bulbs (it is preferable to use led light bulbs)
• Bulb not included
• Made in Italy

Megaclite

Icosahedron

Consisting of 20 equilateral triangular faces, the icosahedron is one of the Platonic solids. Its shape with the thicknesses chosen by us results in a rather “solid” solid. That is, its lines cover its surface for a good 30%. The light that filters through is therefore smaller and more tenuous than other solids we make. The construction of this solid is more complicated than others in the assembly phase. The icosahedron has no planar reference points.

Specifications

• Wires and lampholders per standards of EU/US
• Electrical included 110v/220v
• Dimensions: 37cm/14 inches diameter
• Max wattage 60W per incandescent bulbs (it is preferable to use led light bulbs)
• Bulb not included
• Custom order available
• Made in Italy

Prometeo

Octagonal prism

Directional light, kitchen counter light, spot light. This octagonal lamp is perfect in a row of 2/3 for a kitchen counter or in a cluster over a kitchen island or a pair over bedside tables. Elm wood is exceptionally beautiful. Not an easy client in terms of woodworking but this is largely compensated but its beautiful figures and many colours.

Variants

With band in another wood

Specifications

• Wires and lampholders per standards of EU/US
• Electrical included 110v/220v
• Dimensions: 24cm height 10cm width
• Max wattage 60W per incandescent bulbs (it is preferable to use led light bulbs)
• Bulb not included
• Custom order available

Oberon

Pinecone

Summer 2017 in Florence was Hot. It did not rain from spring until fall and because of this a giant cedar tree in fulcro team’s front yard passed away. This unfortunate event has lead to some very fortunate lighting possibilities.
This pine cone shaped pendant lamp was made with the cedar from our fallen tree. It is very original and can never be exactly recreated but we will do our best to make more in this style as wood supplies last. This is the slimmer and more bark filled version of our original pine cone design.

Specifications

• Dimensions (WxDxH): 28x25x34cm (11×13.4in)
• Electrical included
• USA Standard or European Standard Electrical 
• Max wattage 60W for incandescent bulbs (it is preferable to use led light bulbs)
• Bulb not included
• Made in Italy

Praxidike

Elongated truncated octahedron light

Praxidike is a truncated and elongated octahedron. Its shape is obtained by lengthening two of the opposite sides of a hexagon. The pieces that make up this lamp are very fine and, combined with the light color of the ash, make it particularly “light”.

Specifications

• Custom orders are available
• Electrical included 110v – 220v
• The wires and lampholders are the country standards for US/EU
• Dimensions: 21cm/8″ by 32cm/13″.
• Max wattage: 60W for incandescent bulbs (it is preferable to use led light bulbs on this lamp)
• Bulb not included
• Made in Italy

Narvi

Diamond

The new oak diamond lamp is a spin-off of the cedar pine cone lamp and was constructed from leftover material from another job. The striking resemblance to the shape of a diamond made us think that we should call this lamp Diamond but we chose to stick to the planets’s names.

Specifications

• Custom order available
• Electrical included: 110v -220v
• Wires and lampholders per standards of US/ EU
• Dimensions (WxDxH): 29cm by 29cm
• Max wattage 60W for incandescent bulbs (it is preferable to use led light bulbs)
• Bulb not included
• Made in Italy
