The work.
Design approach: the perfectibility of the work.

Today’s dichotomy between countless languages and no language reveals the need to recover and reinterpret the excellence of Italian design tradition.

The experiment was to reinterpret today some hallmarks of the work of Gio Ponti, Pietro Chiesa and Max Ingrand for Fontana Arte, using the most advanced technologies currently available, as well as rethink the compositional approach in a process of “perfectibility of the work ” that tends to exalt the idea. In the construction, wanting to give new impetus to the high quality Italian craftsmanship, individual materials are rethought, enhancing their quality through manufacturing techniques: from traditional system of neon lighting, to high efficiency LED; from welded brass structure to aluminium foil cut with CNC machines; from the original assembly with fixing pins to bonding systems, made possible thanks to the new processing of glass that, likewise, has made it possible to rethink the size of the same.

Coffee Table
The idea of the coffee table is inspired by the design project “Un art Autre” for Fendi, in 2013. The two overlapping crystal shelves reveal the reflections on the two curved brass elements. This work of art is summarized by forming light sculptures through the creative way of using brass and glass.

Floor & Wall Lamps
The applique and the floor lamp, are composed of two layers of mirror brass and curved glass, fixed by brass pins and spacers. A shaft of light is transmitted along the crystal cut reflecting on the surfaces of brass.

Wall Lamp
The conceptual approach is the reinterpretation of the Gio Ponti pair of wall lights, from The Palazzo Gallini, in Voghera, in 1956.
The curved brass allows to enjoy the LED light reflections like a stylized fire.
