A part of the studio's Anno Tropico Collection, this sculptural lamp was design by Formafantasma in 2016. Available as a limited edition of 6 + 2 AP + 1 prototype, this design embodies the studio's interest in the functional and expressive quality of light, with the aim of rethinking object typologies through material investigations.
The work Colore – Test 3 (2016) reflects the designers’ interest in the functional and expressive qualities of light and demonstrate the duo’s research-based process with the aim of rethinking object typologies through material investigations. Elements which at first appear sculptural, reveal a specific intent on closer inspection. Designed as a three-dimensional sketch, this piece –part of a larger project- is instinctively, yet carefully assembled, using stationary (pencils and erasers) and standard industrial materials (steel rods, bricks and insulation material). The LED strip is left visible and unfiltered, embracing the punctuated light as an opportunity, rather than a limitation. The result is a meticulous investigation into the components of light — reflection, shadow, color, space — through the use and the use of optics, mirrors and glass to shape it.
