Embryonic lamp


The idea behind these creations was that of generating a significant dialogue between the concepts of Life and Light. Like an embryo pulsing inside a body, the lamp gives a perception of being alive.

Stretched over an intricate form made of steel wires, the lamp uses nylon stockings to evoke the relation between a skin which breathes and its artificial mechanical skeleton. To further elaborate this idea, two different coloured stockings (skins) are used: the interior as proof and form of a new life, the exterior, on the other hand, as that of a protective body. It is here that the lamp finds its uniqueness: in the void between the two.

Three prototype lamps where presented with related sketches at ‘Francesca Trezzi’, as part of the ‘Fuori Salone’ during the Milan Furniture Fair.
