Essential and very contemporary design for Con.tradition, the luminous lanterns designed by Sara Bernardi and inspired by the Chinese Heritage
The concept is based indeed on the apparent contradiction between the minimalism of contemporary style (Con.temporary), and the preciousness of Chinese antique furniture style (.tradition).
The collection draws inspiration from the observation of some archetypes of the chinese furniture tradition (the lantern, the folding screen, the altar table for the calligraphy, and the tea table) with the aim of establishing a new relation between tradition and modernity
The exchange reaction between two opposite identities is underlined by the materials employed that belong to construction field, concrete and steel reinforced bars. The roughness and the strength of construction materials are mixed and forced to a reaction with the elegance of the Chinese antique furniture style.
The result are lamps, minimal, elegant and refined in shapes, the perfect choice for modern indoor spaces.
Available in 4 sizes and 3 finishes (black, white or chrome) they are transversal in use (floor, wall or ceiling).
A collection of lamps while combining romantic atmosphere and industrial style, will illuminate creating unique and extraordinary contrasts of lights and shadows.
