In the extraordinary inventive whim of this plastic complex we recognize a cultural landscape that is nourished by many sources, from the Avant-Gardes to Post-modernism, passing with agility and irony from the teaching of Gio Ponti and the Bauhaus to the future scenarios of space probes and satellites.
WALLIE FLOOR / APPLIQUE / TABLE
This cheerfully dressed device has plates made of glossy or matt varnished steel and brass, curved like cloth, with tiny little holes, that dance in a sophisticated and amusing game of shapes.
Wallie explodes like a firework and it comes in a range of variations.
The name is Wallie.
As intend in its name, Wallie is a wall lamp. But it is also a kind of papier collé you build up, level by level.
The plates made of glossy or matt varnished steel and brass, curved like cloth, with tiny little squared and round holes, nearly invisible, dance in a sophisticated and amusing game of shapes. Cilinders cut in halves, folded surfaces like concave mirrors, the illusion of an absolute front cube communicating in a equilibrium that seems about to lose itself.
Everythings happes in front of us, these dressed up devices deploy in front of us, in their black and gold guise.
Even when off, Wallie doesn't lose its grace and keeps quivering.
