Fossili

Client: Pimar
Year: 2018

 

Fossili pendant lamps recall prehistoric shells embedded in Italian limestone that have crossed geological eras to tell a story in which matter and time are inextricably intertwined. The suspended limestone diffusers convey an airiness in apparent contrast with the material of which they are made, creating a surprising and unexpected effect that enhances the charm of these lamps. The unusual and sensitive craftsmanship features stone as a sort of protagonist; singularly organic, these lamps fit into the home as familiar elements that inhabit the memory while simultaneously standing out, thanks to the original and innovative use of the material. The light these lamps emit accentuates Italian limestone’s warmth and natural tones, while their 'pleated' and sculptural outer surfaces create an attractive chiaroscuro effect that exposes their tactility.

LIKE FOSSIL INCLUSIONS HELD UP TO LIGHT, THESE LAMPS TELL A STORY IN WHICH MATTER AND TIME ARE INEXTRICABLY INTERTWINED
