35 Commerce Crescent
Bowling Avenue, Kramerville
Johannesburg, South Africa, 2090
Design by: Gio Ponti
Nothing more than a sphere, set in an apparently impossible feat of balance, upon a cone that serves as
the base. One of Gio Ponti’s many compositional magic tricks. The counterbalancing of two elementary
geometric forms results in an original, perfectly proportioned object. The light is diffused by the geometrical simplicity of the design. Originally in brushed nickel plate, Bilia is now also available with a brass
cone and LED light source.
