Slim Tower (2013) is an indoor light sculpture
which favours an upwards development with the
slimmest silhouette of the collection.
The structure of this design lamp is available
in both polished or oxidized bronze.

 

Angela started her Wrapped Collection as a
result of her studies on the effects of organic
oxidation on bronze and on the quirky and
schizophrenic nature of this metal. The marks
left by this process emerge from the underlying
layers thus transforming the original texture
and giving new life to the substance/matter.
Another founding concept of this collection is
the use of concentric circles that mimic the
ripple effect produced by an object dropped
into a calm body of water. To Angela, the circle
is the most interesting and appealing shape.
Its perfect symmetry and natural smoothness
deliver a feeling of tranquillity and
wholesomeness. By overlapping these concentric
circles, Angela plays with the intersections
of the lamp’s structure and creates areas where
light and shadow meet and contrast, at times
highlighting, at times obscuring each other.
