Gabriele e Oscar Buratti, 2020
The "shape of light" is the central theme of this project by Gabriele and Oscar Buratti, which began with the Equatore family of lamps, presented in 2017 and now expanded to include other finishes, and continues with the new Meridiano and Tropico. Forms of glass and metal that collect, contain and diffuse light in space. Passing between opaline, coloured and transparent layers, emphasised by the refined curves and the magic of blown glass, the light is free to create surprising and fascinating effects, patterns and moods. Tropico is a spherical cap of opaque opaline glass, flattened and fixed by a large mirrored metal boss. The family comprises wall/ceiling and table versions, both available in three different sizes.
