We love this beautiful Cloud Sculpture by Benedetta Mori Ubaldini for Magis in Italy. This brilliant new creation by Magis Italy creates an airy and sculptural element in any room. The Magis Cloud sculpture is made from light grey epoxy resin coated metal mesh. While the Magis Cloud's frame would normally form the inner working of a sculpture, Benedetta Mori Ubaldini uses the raw aesthetic in a grey finish as the final product, hiding nothing to the imagination other than the fluffy little cloud images one might see in the sky. The designer remarks, "My starting point was the desire and the vision to fill large spaces with a symbolic and poetic narrative of mine. Clouds and Birds are the result of this vision: sculptures in metal mesh without internal structure, where the play between presence and absence becomes the poetic element of the work". The Magis Cloud Sculpture by Benedetta Mori The Cloud Sculptures by Benedetta Mori Ubaldini appeal because of the clarity of their structure, simply put, they embody the essence of good design. Ubaldini is supplied with a hook for ceiling suspension.
The Nesso table lamp was created in the year 1965 by the designer Giancarlo Mattioli and the Gruppo architetti urbanisti citta nuova for the Italian lamps manufacturer Artemide. Already in the year 1965, Nesso won the 1st prize at a design competition in Milan. With brilliant methods, the Nesso table lamp from Artemide embodies the modern time spirit of the 1960es with all its colourful and optimistic colours and forms. The round and organic design of the lamp wakes associations with a mushroom. Nesso spends direct and diffuse light. Through the mushrooms’ head, the light is radiated coloured, white it shines directly to the base. Base and lamp-shade from Nesso consist of ABS plastic that is manufactured in a die casting procedure in chromed moulds. Today the Nesso table lamp is a classic of the lamp design and placed in numerous museums all around the world; such as for example the renowned New York Museum of Modern Art. Nesso is available in white and orange.
