bloom suspension lamp

bloom suspension lamp

Design Ferruccio Laviani, 2010
Transparent or batch-dyed polycarbonate
Made in Italy by Kartell

A lamp as precious as Murano glass, as irreverent as a rock opera: Bloom literally blooms in a scintillating and lavish crystal cascade. Bloom is a tubular polycarbonate framework entirely covered by a structure of tiny transparent polycarbonate double corolla flowers. The result is an industrially produced lamp but with all the forms and stylistic complexity of a unique handcrafted piece. A series of little lights located within the skeletal structure beams the light shafts through the petals to refract on their faceted surfaces and multiply a thousand reflections.

As an architect and designer, Ferruccio Laviani works in the fields of furnishing and accessories, industrial communication, exhibition, event and show room installation. He has worked with a variety of companies worldwide. In 1992, the collaboration between Laviani and Foscarini began and it has continued since, with the research of new shapes and materials. His contemporary style is hallmarked by a particular sign or color.

Available in the elegant transparency of crystal, matte white or black and in a sexy mix of pink and black, Bloom is a new way of interpreting a traditional lamp with that special added touch. A work of art that can furnish and fill a room all by itself, creating that atmosphere of "shining splendor".

F. Laviani

Ferruccio Laviani (b. 1960) of Cremona, Italy graduated from Politecnico di Milano in architecture in 1986 and created industrial design objects, mainly lamps or lighting systems known for colored transparent plastics. From 1986-1991, he was a member of the De Lucchi studio, designing for various companies such as Credito Bergamasco, Mandarina Duck, Memphis, Olivetti, and Swatch. He came into prominence as the Memphis group began to leave its mark on International design. In 1991, he showed his silverware from the Morandotti collection at the "European Capitals of New Design” exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The same year, he began a collaboration with Kartell and is now an artistic director and consultant.
Kartell's image and its 59 years of history are described through the company's products. The development, the corporate strategies, the attention the company has paid to technology, the project and the design can be appreciated by observing the products Kartell has produced. Kartell's products express the language and the atmosphere of the period in which they were created, but at the same time, they are "contemporary articles," they incorporate many other values and messages and this is why they have become an integral part of our domestic design world.
