Plussmi is characterised by light creations from designers and studios such as Enblanc, Jorge Pensi, Martin Azua, Cerocuadrado, Nacho Timon, Silvia Ceñal or Ximo Roca himself. An example of this new line is The Chosen One, a lamp that can also be used as a container for small objects, with two interior lights that highlight the objects.
