The series is characterized by fragments of organic motifs, dissolving into geometric shapes connecting as a unique joints order. This collection is made of an interesting combination of wood and Plexiglas. The parts are being painted and carefully assembled all by hand. The connecting method of the duplicated elements are converging around a central crystalline axis, creating an object with a new maverick language. The lighting fixtures give functional illumination as well as ambiance lighting.
Thanks to the soft light and the shadows, the fixtures are creating a fascinating space. The series does a combination of wood and Plexiglas and creates points of osculation between natural and plastic material. The lighting fixtures are a fruit of combined technologies, computerized and handcrafted, resulting a celebration of nature and man-made creation. The design process is made on 3D computer software; the parts are being formed by laser cutting and assembled by hand. The lighting fixtures are manufactured in small series.
Materials: Transparent and semi-transparent Plexiglas, Lacquer coating and painted wood
