About the Exhibition
The “Funambolo” collection designed by Giacomo Moor is inspired by the poetic imagery of acrobats who stand out against the horizon, creating pure and essential lines. A turned cylinder, composed by a long wooden arm and a shorter metal one made of the same color, leans on a rod and finds its balance in an unexpected joint, far from its center, in a sort of magical suspension. A led strip is built- in in the wooden part of the rod and can be directed by a simple rotation along its length, the magnetic conduction allows the electrical passage through the contact between the two overlapped arms.
The extreme formal simplicity of the lamp hides a complex investigation to remove the visible technical elements: taking the link between form and function to the extreme results. On view some of the possible variants: a single and a corner suspension, a wall to wall system. A collection of unlimited pieces opened up to as many versions as possible available in three different essences: fossil black oak, rosewood and gray ash, matched, tone on tone, to the respective metallic finishes.
