Artemide Mercury Mini is a Suspension light that places a floating assembly of large pebbles below a simple modern aluminium disc. These in turn reflect each other bouncing light between their unique surfaces and reflecting the environment around them.
During the day the piece acts as a sculptural object reflecting the dynamics of natural light and the movement of people around them. The Mercury Mini version is a smaller version of the Mercury Suspension light.
Material: Die-Cast Aluminium lighting unit, reflective units made of injection-moulded thermoplastic material with metallic finish, die-cast aluminium reflector
