Foscarini, 2010

Together with Bahia this product starts off the collaboration with Foscarini.  The purpose was to realize a small suspension lamp which could express a self material feature in opposition to impersonal and cold minimalism. We chose the cement because it is poor, very expressive and changeable for its own nature. It took two years approximately to get the right thickness ready in some areas it becomes a real skin – and to find the craftsmen able to do this jump from architecture to design.  Despite it’s a semi-manufactured material and not finished, Aplomb easily succeed in introducing itself both in contract and home sectors according to a linear or grouped logic of multiplication. Starting mixture may be grey, white or brown.
