Floor Lamp by Pyka-Leone, Abstract Organic Carved Olive Wood, Italy

About

Beautifully crafted Floor lamp designed and made of olivewood by Pyka-Leone, Italy. Its organic shape is made out of olivewood, the very symbol of the Mediterranean spirit and history that tells of the ancient pulse and mysteries binding man and nature. Paired with its see through design, lets light shine through creating a beautifully soft and alluring light. Leone and Pyka live and work together in Castelvetrano in the provice of Trapani, Italy. The works of of Pyka-Leone are represented in many important collections and museums such as the Orestiade Foundation of Gibellina, the Antonio Presti-Fiumara d’Arte Foundation in Castel di Tusa, at the the Royal Palace of Giordan and in the office centre of Telecom-Arabia in Riyadh. They were prize winners in the ID Magazine, New York in July/August 1998 and, most recently, at the Buttita Foundation of Palermo. Their work is based and developed upon their researches into the rapport between humanity and nature. Nature, comes from the processes and energy of creation, and of this humanity is a part. A stratification of things and events, forming solid material into a vision in which form and spirit create the very foundation of the song of nature. Because of these poetic intentions, the objects of Ute and Umberto's enquiries become a symbol of vegetable life and the dynamic union of Sky Earth and Humanity. It was this process that created their first sculptures “Eliotropica”. The bandsaw follows the markings of natural wood, discovering and re-opening holes and spaces through which light can once again return and infiltrate as once it did as the tree grew in life. This particular technique of working is used by the two artists for the making of furniture, objects and sculpture.
