Halo Vice beams a radiant pink and yellow sky-scape, reproducing the natural phenomenon often seen at dusk or reflected off snow-covered peaks at sunset. Mounted on a slender rod anchored by a solid-iron base, the rotatable head element is carved from a solid plate of black anodized aluminum, brass and glass. With this sophisticated optical system developed by Milan design studio Mandalaki, both the direction and pitch of the display can be angled for a offhand take on the circular shape.

Calling it “a visual meditation,” Italy’s Halo Edition is changing the very definition of lighting with room-size swaths of startlingly colored brilliance. An offshoot of Milan’s Mandalaki, a product and consulting design studio founded in 2012, the company devised the optics to unleash stunning wall projections not from colored lights but with infinite hues made possible by altering the frequencies of white light to produce a visual palette. Halo’s sophisticated lenses also control any blurring of the precise effect according to the angle of refraction.
Engineered with a solid-iron base and slender stand, the color projector is made of anodized aluminum carved from a solid plate, which integrates a high-power LED and the advanced optical features. "Using traditional Milanese artisanal processes and locally sourced materials, we designed a light that is an art object," the designers say. The aim of the collection, which includes compact table lamps, floor lights and ceiling fixtures, they add, is nothing less than “creating worlds of nuance in which people can dive in.”
