Giopato & Coombes

June 2017
During Milan Design Week, Giopato & Coombes presented three lighting projects driven by the theme of Ornament and Crime. The designers ask provocatively: Is ornament really a crime when it goes hand in hand with technology and functionality? The result is a balance between an iconic metal structure and the coloured, precious ‘gems’ inserted within it, paying tribute to the painstaking work of the goldsmith. A light, elegant glass chain is joined by metal rings with a matte goldplated finish that contain the light source, an LED strip.
