This Freeform Luminaire marks the beginning of a new stylistic development based on energetic, undulating gestures. Made from bent timber “Freeform” has been an ongoing concept in John Procario’s studio. It began with his idea of wood being a metaphor for the bod. Wood will bend comfortably to a point, then break, just like bone or muscle, wood has it’s limit. What John was trying to do in his work is create a sense of strain in the wood’s gesture. Conceptually, he was trying to allow beauty to be the product of strain.
