Verspiegelte Perspectives Lampe von Gionata Gatto Studio

2 189.00 EUR
Italian-born, Rotterdam-based designer Gionata Gatto is known for evocative projects that question the significance of daily objects. The Perspectives series, which was commissioned by Maxxi for the exhibition Design Destinations, investigates the role that point-of-views plays in light diffusion. For Perspectives, a 2W LED light is mounted between an assembly of regular and one-way mirrors, resulting in a collection in which light effect is amplified along different vanishing points. If the light is turned off, each mirror works as a regular, reflective surface. When the light is switched on, however, the one-way mirror becomes partially transparent, featuring an amplification of the light burning between the inner-facing surfaces.
