material as resistant as steel, geometric shapes intersecting,
drawing 3D compositions which seem to twirl suspended in space,the Thinness Collection is a journey into lightness, with furnishing elements made entirely of very thin steel plates, - 2 or 3 mm thick - folded, welded, ground and finished by hand. Designed by the London-based Italian duo 06D Atelier and made entirely in Brianza (Italy), using both hi-tech and hand-made processes,these
objects reflect the pioneering spirit of their native country where
beauty and innovation are inherited elements sculpted in the DNA.
between points of the firmament delineate mythological figures.
This is the thought of
our ancestors, who thus traced maps of known figures to reassure
themselves against the dismay of the unknown.
And those bright spots,
stars, connected by imaginary straight lines created by the
constellations familiar names. Animals, heroes, objects of daily use
- projecting their everyday life into the immensity of the sky.
A suspension lamp that
takes its name from Orion, the hunter. Orion courted Merope, the
daughter of King Enopio, for the insult made him blind and threw him
out from his kingdom. Later the poor Orion met Hephaestus, the smith,
who, pity for his story, made him mechanical eyes. And Orion, happy
to have regained his sight, began to hunt in the company of his
faithful dog, Sirius, and continues to do so even today, eternally
crossing the night sky. Thus Orion illuminates the space and reflects
the light on its external surfaces, which live in a thousand glows
resplendent in the dark.
is a sculptural lamp, standing out in space with its multifaceted
geometry, which diffuses light thanks to an array of LED strips, and
releases a magical display of light into the ambient, playing with
the reflections of the gilded metal. It consists of a series of 2 mm
thick steel plates, which are laser cut, bent and shaped, welded and
milled, then hand finished, to obtain a soft, reflective but not
mirror-like satin finish.
