Marble lamps, 2020
DOME is a lamp not like any other. Each one is a unique marble piece, carved into existence after being carefully chosen from a small pre-produced stock in a marble quarry. Its name arises from the thin rounded convex shape that it has. Michelangelo said that “every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it”, and that is what DOME is all about.
Since each marble block is unique, each lamp appearance may vary from hundreds of possible natural designs and colours. For this reason, this powerful lamp easily stands out when turned off. However, when turned on, the light surpasses the thin layer of stone and the exhibited contrasts become an evidence of its beautiful natural features.
