(jiří macek) The designer of the unforgettable Bourgie and Cindy plastic lamps has designed another starry light for Kartell. It is called Bloom - its name is no coincidence because the light really is full of stars, I mean crystals, while at the same time shows new possibilities for working with light.
Ferruccio Laviani, who has cooperated with the Italian brand of Kartell since 1991, is, apart from other things, the architect of the Kartell flag stores. He can play with lights and illusions perfectly. Not only is his richly shaped lamp Bourgie a historicizing play, it is also a perfect instigator of illusion, its transparent version in particular. Its ambitious decorative shape enabled Laviani to play with optical illusions of the plastic used to such an extent that the light sometimes seems to be an intangible twinkling substance in the concoction of loopholes, illusions, and reflections.
In the structure of the Bloom light, Feruccio Laviani went even further, letting the glow of the light lean against a structure made from crystalline particles shaped into various compositions, ranging from the shape of a traditional light to a comet. The end result presents lights on the verge of a starry sky, an artistic plastic statuette, and a glowing flowery meadow. It is all made from plastic in lot-production.
