PERFORMANCE IN LIGHTNING
LIQUID is the first luminaire designed by Walter de Silva and Andrea Zuanni for PERFORMANCE iN LIGHTING in 2017 where technology and beauty come together in a unique design. Light is energy, wave, evanescence. Metal is static and durable over time. The waves of a drop crystallize into a lightweight, solid volume that expresses fluidity and dynamism at the same time.
The configuration emphasizes the use of the latest generation of light sources. “Knowing the intended use of luminaires for large spaces, I had to formulate the redemption from the usual condition of mere tedious functionality, making it look more refined. Here then is the introduction of a metaphor to make the intention possible. Why not think of it as a fluid that falls and encounters a surface, spreading as ripples?
