There is nothing better than a volcano to represent the pure energy of the matter. The power of nature is a steady element of Pietro Russo’s work: with its eclectic research, the taste for imperfection and unfinished, the selections of raw materials. It is not about inspiration, but it is rather a matter of empathy, transference, deep sharing.
The Vulcano lamp evokes the Aeolian islands in southern Italy, a place much loved by the designer where there are still two active volcanoes named Stromboli and Vulcano. As a true alchemist, Russo reproduced the presence of a volcano not only with the clear shape and the strong materials selected, but above all with the use of light, play of reflections and light refraction passing through the glass.
