Firmamento Milano Red Newton Pendant Lamp by Franco Raggi

About the Item

Please note that VAT is not included in the price. The image of the kinetic energy that is transmitted invisibly across the five shiny balls when the impact of the first ball moves the last while the others are still, has always fascinated everyone. Newton is a lamp that pictures this moment in time and space, with its light coming down from within the chrome and transparent glass balls. Franco Raggi graduated in 1969 in Architecture from the Politecnico in Milan, the city where he lives and works. In 1973, on behalf of the Berliner IDZ (International Design Zentrum) he curated the first critical Italian Radical Design exhibition. From 1975-1977 he was the coordinating secretary for the Visual-Architecture Arts Section at the Biennale in Venice. In 1979-1980 he was in charge of the “Raccolta del Design” section at the Triennale in Milan. He did projects in architecture, retail areas, layouts, environments and objects for well-known international design companies such as Cappellini, Danese, Artemide, Kartell and FontanaArte. His lamp “On Off,” designed for Luceplan, is in the permanent design collection at MOMA in New York. From 2001-2011 he has been art director of Barovier&Toso. His most significant architecture works include the interiors of the Humanitas Hospital in Milan, 1996, the head offices of the Fondazione Gianfranco Ferrè, 1998, and the headquarters of the company Techint, 1999. He taught at the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Pescara, at the NABA and at IED in Milan where he has been in charge of the Architecture Department from 1996-1998.

  • Firmamento Milano Trilite Table Lamp by Franco Raggi
    By Franco Raggi, Firmamento Milano
    Located in Milano, Lombardia
    Please note that VAT is not included in the price. Trilite is a micro architecture for the room. Often today architecture is conceived as urban and pushy maxi objects. Trilite is just the opposite: a small architecture for an eclectic and discontinuous home landscape, a small portal of light that discreetly illuminates. The base is made of valuable marble, the portal is polished red lacquer while the light is spread by a thin aluminum tile. For minimal lovers it is available also in white. Franco Raggi graduated in 1969 in Architecture from the Politecnico in Milan, the city where he lives and works. In his role as author he has taken part in a large number of exhibitions and held conferences and seminars all over the world. In 1973, on behalf of the Berliner IDZ (International Design Zentrum) he curated the first critical Italian Radical...
