Italian designer Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba, studio Marcantonio, opens philosophical theme of inspiration in the design object – in his new art object and lamp Idea for Slamp. Moreover, the idea of inspiration appearance in a very ironic interpretation. Two perfect images in one – the Venus of Arles and an Edison light bulb. In this case, the bulb is attached to Venus by glass, seems like occasionally! And thus, the lighting demonstrates the idea and the power of inspiration of the ancient sculptor in the new light! Forward for perfection!
The lighting was first presented at the world design forum – Milan exhibition ISaloni 2019 in April 2019, at Euroluce hall devoted to lightings especially.
It’s used to say that inspiration suddenly flashes, like a light bulb in your head. Italian designer Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba shows that this is exactly what happens, but the bulb is actually outside. The designer calls himself simply Marcantonio, so is the name of the famous engraver of the Italian Renaissance, also Marcantonio Raimondi, who represented the works of Raphael in his engravings.
Looking at this lamp, it becomes clear that it embodies the idea of saying: "Switch on your brain!".
There are other less ironic and more minimalist versions of the lamp Idea: on a brass mini-rod, or simply attached to the wall or ceiling by glass, not by brass part, unexpectedly! But not for Marcantonio, who constantly creates ironic design objects.
Light source is LED in the traditional and fantastic light bulb.
