With the Ufo design ceiling lamp, 2013, Angela abandons the oxidation process in favour of a more polished look. The addition of a LED column raises the luminosity of the lamp, making it easily the sole source of illumination of a room. Ufo’s structure is available in brass or 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.
