Stoccolma

May light be flexible? Stoccolma was born as the answer to this question. Inspired by the the strings of a musical instrument, Stoccolma is a lamp that works thanks to the tension of two elastic and metal cables that support and brings current to a central Led. The result is a circular light source, minimal and pure, that can be moved and rotate of 360 giving the user the ability to personalize the direction and the position of the light. Stoccolma is an innovative and high quality light system, the use of four anchor points makes this object easily customizable and extremely functional.

Cage

Cage lighting is produced with hot glass blowing and metal forming techniques. The amorphous and blown shaped units provide light refraction at different rates. Lighting units create an illusionic and crystalline effect on the glasses. Emphasizing the communication between light and freedom and the organic bond with a transparent, warm material like glass is the main idea in the design. Metal baskets resembling a cage are used in this series. One of them is the pinter, which is actually a tool used for fishing. This object is used as a lighting element in the design.

Standly Bao

Standly Bao is a assistive device for workers who need to go through long period of standing, keeping them in fine standing posture and mental state, at the same time having the same mobility as standing. With three points pressure method, pressure of lower limbs can be reduced, thus keeping workers from developing wrong standing posture. When the device is folded up, it gives back the space to narrow working space such as counters in bar or department store.

Collection Crypto

Crypto is a modular lighting collection since it can expand vertically as well as horizontally, depending on how the single glass elements that compose each structure are distributed. The idea that inspired the design originates from nature, recalling ice stalactites in particular. The peculiarity of Crypto items stands in their vibrant blown glass that enables light to spread in many directions in a very soft way. Production occurs by means of a completely handcrafted process and it is the end user who decides how the final installation will be composed, each time in a different way.

Mob-Clock

Mob-clock is a table clock made up of a graded Mobius strap as the main body on a stand and a ball as a pointer. Although time is a linear one-direction concept, there are two repeating loops for each day, AM and PM, in normal clocks. Indeed, as in daily life, people do not switch their sides and continue and go on through the day; Mob-clock helps the user to have a natural feeling about time. In Mob-clock, the pointer moves in only one direction on one boundary of Mobius to pass 24 hours without any repeating and switching side and boundary.

Zero

Zero is modular, and proposes the elongation of the main piece through a simple connection of the cylindrical tubes, thus allowing different layouts, resulting in a sculptural and organic format. It is called Zero because it is close to the ground, because it offers a connection with the energy of the earth and a position open to the sun, to the sky. Zero depends on other pieces to be one. A major challenge was to find the correct angle of curvature to give the piece the anatomy that would generate comfort for the user.
