Magic Circus – Upside Down

January 21, 2022

New from the Magic Circus, Upside Down lamp by Marie-Lise Féry takes inspiration from children’s games and their geometric forms.

“I focused my research on regular forms and the clear, plain lines recalled by geometric figures in space. Like the simple construction games we used to play with as children, with all their endless possibilities, these geometric volumes appeared to me to be just as conceivable in one direction as in another,” says Féry.

“Upside or inverted, these geometric volumes allow me to play with my imagination, turning this compilation of pieces into abstract and figurative forms. These ceiling lights with geometric shapes and their extraordinary sizes and materials offer a completely new interpretation of form.

“The remarkable work produced by Vetrarti’s glassblowers, the preciousness of the materials, and its outsized formats allow this ensemble, in principle very simple, to read as delicate and theatrical and almost fantastical.”
