Local-based Studio davidpompa was born out of the desire to create contemporary design with a strong commitment to create contemporary design with a strong commitment to Mexican identity. They work with an ethos of innovating craftsmanship and materials while respecting its heritage.
‘Cupallo’ is a pendant lamp that uses 100% recycled and hand-shaped glass for the lens, resulting in an irregular surface with surprisingly tiny air bubbles enclosed. The glass creates a charming light effect and enhances the distribution of it through irregular flares. The lenses are made piece by piece in a small glass factory in Hildago, Mexico, while the outside shape is made of polished brass in a metal spinning process by artisans in the country’s capital.
The pendant lamp can be used in an elegant, horizontal arrangement, as well as in a playful way by hanging them in a disordered chandelier. Because of the artisanal hand driven process, every piece shows a unique personality. ‘Cupallo’ will be presented at Salone Satelite during Salone del Mobile 2016 in Milan.
