Milan, the ‘design capital of the world’, is home to the annual Handmade Exhibition, hosted by Wallpaper* Magazine.
This year to celebrate its tenth annual exhibition, titled Handmade X: With Love, the Magazine curated and paired designers and makers, artists and manufacturers, asking them to craft unique objects and that inspire desire, passion and affection.
We were delighted to collaborate with cult jewellery brand Alighieri, whose work is inspired by Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy and characterised by a raw, imperfect beauty.
Inspired by the idea of found treasure, the ‘Desert Shore’ lamp was crafted.
Sculpted from a single curved sheet of forged steel, and hand finished in our painting studio, the outside layer is decorated in a blend of bronze and copper leaf, with a contrasting interior of textured gold leaf. Illuminated by glowing LED the piece perfectly combines sculpture and lighting.
