On the occasion of Euroluce 2017, which was organized at Milan last April, I had presented you some novelties that I particularly liked. Among these, I dedicated a post to the Guazza collection, a lighting collection designed by Filippo Mambretti for Selene Illuminazione.
Why do I go back today talking about Guazza?
The reason is as simple as exciting: Guazza has ranked fifth, officially entering between finals, at the prestigious Light Middle East Awards, in the category Table Lamps.
Took part in the selection more than 100 lamps: to know that the jury, made up of six renowned international judges, selected Guazza, the lamp produced by a small craft company located just a short distance from Venice (italy) as Selene Illuminazione, can only fill me very pride.
Great thanks goes to the designer who created it, Filippo Mambretti, who has been able to combine blown glass, a symbol of Venetian glass tradition, with forged metal in contemporary lines, and finally with Marquina black marble, a natural material that is still not present so often in the lighting.
Guazza is composed by a central structure, a semi-cylinder painted metal, put on a circular base made in Marquina black marble, a perfect circle that seems to be the shadow of the spherical lampshade, made by thin hand-blown glass color milk, placed at the opposite end of the structure.
The lamp has, to the viewer, a great lightness and it is very chic. Guazza has available as a table lamp, floor lamp and wall lamp.
The frame is supplied in the following finishes: white color, bi-color mat black and gold leaf, and the new and very elegant champagne color. The power cable is made of black fabric. Inside the sphere in blown glass there is the bulb is E14 for Led 10W.
Now we have only to wait the prestigious awards ceremony on the 19th October 2017 that will be at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre to discover the winner.
We cross our fingers for Guazza!
