Rhizaria + Biophilia lamps by Lanzavecchia + Wai for .exnovo

July 31st, 2014 by retail design blog

Rhizaria + Biophilia are two lamps commissioned by Trento-based 3D-professional printing company .exnovo, for the launch of Design-Apart NYC, a space showcasing the best of Italian bespoke design, in which advanced technologies and ancient traditions are integrated. Rhizaria, made of sintered polymer and mouth-blown Murano glass, is inspired by the simple primordial organisms able to create tiny and complex structures, that illuminated the ocean depths and produced oxygen that eventually caused life to develop on Earth.

Biophilia, also of sintered polymer, takes cues from its growth-like method of manufacture – 3D-printing – is an industrial product designed as a living organism, albeit belonging to the Plantae rather than the Animalia. Fed by its web of veins, it sprouts and grows from the light-source.
