The creation of this design is a reflection of a mix of inspirations that are always close to me and my journey. Everything that is most pure and intimate to me as a person, is translated later into the creations I make. Literature is one of my great passions along with art and architecture. Through poetry I wanted to create a dialogue, between the words, the forms, the textures and the spectator. An interactive and emotional connection between the deepest intimacy and the purpose of this piece.
The poem of Federico Garcia Lorca embraces the verticality of this lamp ending with an accent light. Federico García Lorca (1898-1936) is one of the most important Spanish poets and dramatists of the twentieth century. García Lorca was born June 5, 1898, in Fuente Vaqueros, Granada. He was one of the vertices of the surrealist triangle formed by him, Salvador Dalí and Luis Buñuel, drawn to the significance of the Surrealist manifesto. García Lorca achieved international recognition as an emblematic member of the Generation of ’27. He was executed by Nationalist forces during the Spanish Civil War.
