Aldo Cibic has re­designed the shape of light with the new Lou col­lec­tion for Venini. Three hand­made Vene­tian glass ob­jects re­alised in milk-white opal glass, half­way be­tween lamps and vases, ex­plore the re­la­tion­ships be­tween light and ob­jects of de­sire. “The col­lec­tion for Venini came from the idea of work­ing on an am­bigu­ous shape that is a com­bi­na­tion of a vase and a lamp,” says Cibic. The three mod­els fo­cus on the el­e­ment of hybrid iden­tity: the lamp be­comes a vase and vice versa. Lou re­veals the in­ten­sity of the glass’s colours when the light is off, then re­stores the ethe­real as­pect of the raw ma­te­rial when the lamp is turned on. venini.com
