Zwei Brüder und ihr Spiel mit der ersten und der zweiten Natur
von Thomas Wagner | 14.01.2013
When designing for Established & Sons and Venini, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec's idea was to light up a voluminous round glass structure that would be supported by a delicate aluminum stick. They worked on the precariousness of the equilibrium: there is one
and only, sharp point of contact, no fixation, as if the glass was in its originate state, hanging insecurely from the blowing pipe. Ronan and Erwan wanted to work on the vulnerability of the object. What was also interesting to them was the mix of techn
iques to make the three elements that craft this lamp: the base and the stick are industrially made in opposition to the glass that has been blown using old tradition methods. The colour of the Lighthouse varies in function of the Murano glass colour pale
tte, from light pink to vibrant orange. The base is marble.
