THE MIC lamp collection by Jorge Lourenço for PURA MESTRIA

May 13th, 2017 by retail design blog

THE MIC is a collection of lamps handcrafted in manual blown glass with optic diamond effect in transparent and polished brass metals.
In the words of the Designer:
“Starting from the beginnings of radio and television, these lamps recreate the indisputably familiar shape of a vintage microphone, we carry this familiar form into the context of illumination and also change its purpose from a recording device to a transmission device.”

PURA-MESTRIA is a a new Portuguese Brand of Lighting and furniture, that made its debut in Milan, at Euroluce (from 4 to 9 of April). Our concept is the combination of manual techniques of manufacture, made by experienced and knowledgeable people – Mestres (in English, Masters) and the use of noble materials (wood, glass, metals, ceramics, ..) used whenever possible in their purest form, Without attempts to try to mask their most striking features. Here, in the central zone of Portugal, we have all these human resources at our disposal, so we had the opportunity to work directly with these people and know their capabilities, as well as getting to know the materials that they work with.
