MATTEO BASTONI + CRISTINA CELESTINO for ATTICO: PUNCHBALL lamp
Pure and honest volumes, sincere shapes blended with genuine materials, made in the best italian districts.
Cristina Celestino, architect, and Matteo Bastoni, fashion designer engaged a project of blending toghether their own skills. The common idea is to introduce a brand new project, Attico, which takes strength from local identity. Industrial design quality and research skills applied to traditional materials generates a new projectual philosophy.
Circular base in Carrara marble, metal rod coated with a leather welt,
lamp shade consists of a metal rod frame.
The main stem is flexible, so the lamp oscillates slightly if provoked.
The leather, which wraps over the classic punchballs “the goal of the boxer”, has been used in unusual way to cover the stem. The leather used to cover the stem is leather welt. The welt is made up of scraps of crushed leather that are reassembled and appear soft to the touch. The lamp shade is empty; the memory of the punchball form is entrusted to a metal frame that holds the light source. Punchball has been shown at salone del mobile 2011 in Milano.
