Supernova Chandelier in Transparent Resin by Jacopo Foggini

About the Item

While working for the family business, Jacopo Foggini discovered the versatile nature of methacrylate, a material generally used in the production of car reflectors. Enchanted by the aesthetical and chromatic qualities of this thermoplastic resin, similar to glass yet tremendously light, Foggini started experimenting its use since the late ‘90s. With a machine of his own invention, Foggini melted methacrylate, and later polycarbonate, at 200°C transforming it into a filament that he then moulds with his hands creating luminous shapes and monumental artworks: labyrinths of colored light, blurring the boundaries between art and design. “The speed of execution is almost the same as that for the glass, however with my materials I can mould monumental artworks that are extremely lightweighted”. Jacopo Foggini was born in Turin and currently lives and works in Milan. He explores art and design crossing the boundaries imposed by the conventions of those disciplines. Jacopo joins really early the family business where he discovers the versatility of the methacrylate, an industrial material normally used in automotive design. His first experimentation with this material date back to the beginning of the nineties, when he starts using a machine of his own invention that heats the methacrylate up to 200 degrees Celsius, producing a filament that he models with his hands to create luminous shapes, monumental works and mazes of threads in an elegant intertwining of colors. Below you will see a primary picture of the Supernova piece, a close up of the material, a nocturnal picture and an installation that Jacopo Foggini did in 2018 using a similar material. Lightsource: E27 Halo, 150w 220v.
