Italian Design Firm Creates Lamp From Single Sheet of Dibond ACM


Italian firm-ZPSTUDIO has focused on commercial, corporate, product and architectural design since 2003. Their creation of an iconic table lamp, Zeta, is part of their ZPSTUDIO TOOLS collection that features small-scale Italian production and craftsmanship. The ZPSTUDIO TOOLS collection embodies a unique relationship between traditional Tuscan crafting techniques with materials used in industrial production.

ZPSTUDIO explains the Zeta lamp was designed with sustainability in mind utilizing a single sheet of Dibond aluminum composite material (ACM). The panels interlock so no hardware or adhesives are necessary in its assembly. The ability to be self-assembled from a flat-pack also decreased shipping costs, as minimum space is needed in distribution.

Dibond is composed of two pre-painted sheets of thin aluminum with a plastic core. And while used primarily in applications such as signage, displays, framing, it is becoming increasing popular in alternative applications like furniture and houseware designs.
