Inverted shadows. Cino zucchi.

Making his debut in the design world in response to Carlotta De Bevilacqua’s request to create a lamp that would relate to space in a new way, Cino Zucchi reverses the light-form relation.

The starting point of his design is a reflection on how form intercepts light, in its turn produced by technology. Form is likened to the mouldings of a trabeation which, in classical architecture can be seen – by following Vitruvius – simply as elements intercepting light and the sun’s movement. Thus the new Inverted Shadows lamp is intended to recapture the articulation of light and shade through the complex geometry of an architectural profile – without any nostalgia for a lost classical epoch. An extruded and translucent profile modulates the light emitted by a linear core contained in it. Its starfish shape directs and diffuses the light received from the inner cylinder which rotates, creating different intensities and atmospheres closely related to the geometry of the internal spaces and its disposition towards them.
