Since the beginning of his pioneering career in the early 1970s, Mattia Bonetti has approached the distinction between art and design not as a barrier, but as a wellspring of creative dialogue. Crystal Candies Lamp belongs to a limited edition of twenty, and is primarily made of rock crystal. A comprehensive monograph of his work was published in 2010 by Skira/Rizzoli, featuring photography and text by Reed Krakoff and essays by Adrian Dannatt, Jacques Grange, Marie-Laure Jousset, and Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis. His work is included in numerous public collections, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
