Produced as an edition of 15 + 2 AP, Fabien Cappello’s Lampara de Frutas de Bronce was developed for the designer’s Artes y Oficios exhibition (2020) at AGO Projects in Mexico City. For this project, Cappello explored non-aspirational aesthetics related to humble materials, vernacular culture, and a new order of values.
Born in France, Cappello is an award-winning furniture and product designer. He studied at the University of Art & Design (ECAL) in Lausanne and in 2009 obtained his MA in Design Products at London’s Royal College of Art under the tutelage of Martino Gamper and Jurgen Bey. He founded his eponymous studio in 2010 and relocated to Mexico City in 2015.
