I Flauti Lamps by Giopato & Coombes
Updated: Jan 14, 2020
The handblown Murano glass LED lamps “I Flauti "combines tradition and technology in search for a new equilibrium between innovation and its context. This contrast creates an object almost lost in time, frozen between the past and the future. The lamps are made of hand blown glass and turned brass, both high quality materials and processes. The glass modules mix different traditional techniques of Murano glassblowing such as “ballotòn” and “filigrana”, and match historical venetian colours that recall romantic sunsets over the floating city. In contrast the custom designed led light source, that shines upwards through the lamp and downwards, is held within a hand turned brass ring, in an effortless display of minimal precision that hides all the necessary and intricate detailing of a suspension lamp.
