Technical lighting line covered in a fine leather cover sewn to measure that integrates all elements of the composition. The innovative connection system has been developed to achieve a sinuous line without apparent interruptions.

Belt is pure flexibility, a sinuous line whose nature is in balance between the softness of leather and the rigidity of aluminum.
Each element of the product is
controlled by leather straps. Some
of them support the weight of the
device, some carry electricity and
some contain light. The initial section
of each composition descends from
the ceiling or rises from the wall, or
even from the floor, and then hangs
thanks to dedicated straps.
Leather is the heart of the project. A soft and warm material that guarantees freedom in the space but, at the same time, is characterized by certain rigidity. The result is a harmonious final composition. Belt is covered in fine leather, treated with natural dyes to obtain the three finishes available in the range: black, green and natural leather.
As for fastening a belt, the installation of the
straps used to hang the lighting profile is done
by sliding the leather straps through dedicated
metal buckles that act as ceiling hooks. Each
strap can be adjusted to respect the configuration
of the environment.
The special micro-connector integrated in
the terminal of the lighting profile allows
the electrical connection to be made with
a simple click. The connection element is
hidden inside the leather strap that
acts as a suspension to support
