Gran Turismo / Table lamp

Marble and brass

Dedicated to the Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 Gran Turismo.

— Gran Turismo is a sophisticated time machine: from the revival of traditional materials to their updating to meet the contemporary-minimal taste, made of rigorous elements and iconic details.

— Dedicated to the Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 Gran Turismo, my new lamp follows retrofuturistic poetics using marble and brass.

Like the protruding headlight of the car symbol of the streamline design of the ’30s, the light source in Gran Turismo is not concealed – on the contrary in reveals itself boldly, even though the brass screen plate creates a soft indirect light.
The design is rather harsh as in a rationalist project from the postwar years, based on the cubic mass of marble which is sliced by the brass plate like a neoplastic composition.
