Anemone is an effect of cooperation with craftsmen working with difficult materials such as stone and rock. The construction of the lamp requires strict discipline and precision. All elements except for the cable and the frame have been particularly designed for the lamp.

Techniques:

Tha lampshade is made using metal spinning techniques.

Stone stands are made of Nero Marquina and Bianco Carrara marble cut with a water jet cutter and a milling machine at a highly specialized stonemason’s workshop. Each stand was finished by hand. The lamp is fitted with a gilded press-formed brass touch switch. The hasps are made of translucent Corian®.

The glass vase surrounds the plants with security. It reminds of the fragility and the importance of life. The mirror lens around the plant appropriates the image of the surroundings and makes the plants observe their reflection in a mirror.

Narcissus represents nature as delicate and requiring protection, but also as selfish and egotistic.

Production method

Narcissus is an effect of cooperation with numerous highly qualified craftsmen. Glassblowers manually produce the glass vases in a wooden mold and give color using a traditional coloring method. The collar surrounding the plant is made in using metal spinning and is later burnished, powder colored and protected against tarnish. Metal elements are welded in a metal workshop.
