(Italy) – Lolli e Memmoli celebrated its anniversary in the spotlight at Salone del Mobile 2018 with a special retrospective guiding visitors through its 25-year journey.
The story of Lolli e Memmoli’s artistic workshop investigates all aspects of lighting design and defines a new way of handling light in a continuous reference between large traditional chandeliers and experimental design. Without any supporting backbone, crystal drops are set free in harmony revealing an extraordinary game of light multiplied by the infinite sparkle of crystal purity. These scenographic artworks of light were on display at the 25 anniversary exhibit, staged within the elegant spaces of Lolli e Memmoli’s showroom in Via Vivarini, Milan. Ugolino, Vladimiro, Caifa, Opus, Aires, Taut, U-Line and their many variants reveal a technical and stylistic deconstructivism making each design more and more ethereal: traditionally well-known forms disappear into an intangible experience of light. The exhibition culminated in a new design: Algebra, the modular light with a sinuous profile inspired by the etymology of its name.
