7 Original Fixtures by Matteo Ugolini
The new collection of Karman lamps is mainly composed of works by Matteo Ugolini, who invented seven lamps for the collection. Working on the Atelier lamp, the designer continued his experiments with textiles by applying big sloppy strokes of white paint on a linen lampshade on a metal frame. Thus the Italian designer tried to return the fabric its original appearance and rough texture, weaving back to the basics, when everything was created by hand.
7 Original Fixtures by Matteo Ugolini for Karman
Sette Nani lamps collection by Matteo Ugolini
Experimenting with the laws of physics, Matteo Ugolini invented a system of hanging lamps called Pietro. It is a floor lamp, which has become a metaphor for love and relationships in a pair – two identical perfectly oval shapes are inextricably linked with wire. Only one of them is shining, and the other is a reliable support to the first one.
Following the success of previous joint project of Karman and Matteo Ugolini (wall lights in the form of a horse’s head and a deer), the companions continue successful series of animalic fixtures. At this time, the Italian designer hung on the wall a glowing pig Porcamiseria, pure white ceramic trophy, which will look great in the nursery.
Sette Nani is a set of seven small lamps in different shapes, similar to the seven dwarfs from the classic story of Snow White. The designer finally realized his long-held desire to work with more intimate lighting – small and not too bright light sources, which are nevertheless illuminate the room sufficiently, if they are hung together.
Paying tribute to his hometown and with a bit nostalgy for his childhood, the Italian designer has created a lamp called Via Rizzo 7. You can put ceramic figurines of birds and parrots on the round street lights.
Again returning to his favorite theme of animals and childhood, the designer creates a light fixture called Wow. It is scene, where a ceramic white rabbit jumps out of textile pot of a magician. Magical composition, full of irony, unexpected and unusual, according to the designer, should give more life to the gray weekdays and remind about the miracles that are close.
Another light in the collection of Karman 2014 from Matteo Ugolini is a green tree of unknown origin. The floor lamp with botanical name Erbavoglio brings joy of spring to the house. It can be put in the room and outdoors.
