Lu-Lu - 211Stefano Casciani, 1996
A theoretical lamp, endowed with just the right measure of geometric abstraction required by object to maintain their courtliness. The geometries chosen by Stefano Casciani are primitive, ancient ones occasionally filtered perhaps, through cubist suggestion. The colour (even white here is colour) constitutes a necessary and consequent datum: marking the volume, emphasizing the profile. The simplification of form in reality protect a core which is complex form the manufacturing point of view (a double mould for blowing the glasses) and from that of the lighting engineering (with differentiated optics such as switches and the sensorial, grazing, dimmer).
In the table version a slight gap lifts the glass off the top and projects a sharp, circular shadow: a detail not to be underrated.
Lu-Lu can desired, be left completely off and hence textural, or on and thus dissolved, but also lit only in its upper half (the light resting on the heavy) or in its lower half (the heavy resting on the light).
Table lamp. Murano glass diffuser. Brushed metal base. Double lighting with dimmer.
