Client / Design Pinetum 02. Innesti villa Gaeta. An exhibition curated by Bruno Boretti, Silvia Fabbroni, Laura Moretti and Guido Pellegrini in the Pinetum of Villa in Gaeta (Moncioni, Chianti)
Year / 2015
“Pinetum 02. Innesti villa Gaeta” is a cultural event curated by Bruno Boretti, Silvia Fabbroni, Laura Moretti and Guido Pellegrini. Each year several artists and designers are invited to design an installation for the old Villa Gaeta and its woods (Pinetum) in Moncioni (Chianti, Tuscany), working with a local company.
The first time I visited the Villa seemed full autumn, although was summer. It was raining so heavily and the few rays of sunlight could hardly filter through the thick blanket of leaves and branches of the forest. In that day I realized that my project would have had to do with the light. More than conventional lamps, I wanted to design a kind of installations that invite us to reflect both on the space and on the light.
Cerchio: Easily to transport, due the central handle, these circles lamp frame the landscape as windows overlooking the nature.
Magnetica: a suspended lamp that combines LED technology with the permanent magnets. Two bodies of turned metal are supported exclusively by the force of attraction of the magnets at the extremities. The constant magnetic field thus generated gives the lamp a sense of lightness, making it susceptible to external vibrations.
