Milano: Furniture Fair 2011

Alessi.  Two light bulbs from Alessilux’s first collection from a new period of Alessi research, which focuses on the world of lighting in collaboration with Foreverlamp. “…The topic naturally led us towards a sort of dissolution of the boundaries between the light bulb and the luminary: several of the designs are probably closer to a real luminary than a mere light bulb.  I believe this new design project will open the door to a revolution in the world of lighting: it’s as if we no longer needed to hide the boring, nondescript and often truly ugly bulbs…” Alberto Alessi.
