David G. Aquini designed the lamp Zoom taking inspiration from the visual language of the virtual reality from the80s, which has meanwhile become “vintage”. The three-dimensional shapes are simulated only thanks to the wireframe representation. The object is reduced to mere contour lines, almost losing all its matter and weight.
As a result, he lamp is not a real object, it becomes a scheme-like graphic representation, undergoing some sort of digitalization process that is the opposite of the design method where you pass from the 3D model to the actual physical object.
The wireframe becomes a desired and sought-for language that becomes itself matter, rather than a simplified virtual view due to poor hardware-software resources.
Even the light source was selected for it to be consistent with the concept of the project. LEDs are shaped in the traditional and reassuring form of the classic incandescent bulb, which is in turn another vintage piece of the recent history.
