Peter Marino’s work is notoriously provocative.
The Rotondo, Cilindro, and Parallelo lamps are no exception: using the “Fasce” technique, the artist hot-works coloured strips wrapped around the geometric volumes of CRYSTAL glass, creating luminous vortices of dramatic beauty.
A striking contrast is thus obtained between the transparency of the CRYSTAL and the weight of the material.
