'lamp / one'
reaching out TO US from TRIESTE, rome.
Lamp / One pendant collection conveys the value of high quality manufacturing, that belongs to the excellence of Italian craftsmanship. The inspiration for the project came from the properties of light. Formaminima was highly interested in the effects of light on surfaces of various materials – how it transforms an object that’s opaque goes translucent and vice versa.
The collection earns value from an arrangement of carefully selected materials, such as locally sourced durmast, satin brass and Carrara marble. The design approach aimed to diligently preserve the characteristics of Italian local know-hows and craft traditions such as; Crystal handmade grinding, and ancient woodworking techniques taken from an of experienced cabinetmaker.
"Our research attempted to explore the concept of transparency. The objective of the entire project was allowing light to become a powerful tool, and enabling it to turn thin surfaces of porcelain or marble into translucent walls."
