The mechanics of the lamp stripped bare reveals the poetry of light.
Acquatinta is the first blown glass lamp by Produzione Privata, it has a lightweight body in which light, material and transparency come into some kind of interplay and dialogue. It was designed with the idea to become an unpretentious, adaptable and contemporary lamp while produced with the wisdom of an ancient craft. It was the first lamp designed and conceived to show the technical components required for its primary function. You can see the bulb in the lamp, and showing the electric cables reveals the insides that until then were always meant to be concealed. This object encapsulates the intimate relationship that De Lucchi established with his blown glass research and workshop.
The creative intuition has married the fascinating craftsmanship of the glassblowers of Murano. Murano is a tiny island in the middle of the venice lagoon steeped in culture, history and tradition. The name Aquatinta is a tribute to Murano, remembering the coloured waters of the glasswork that in their harmonious ripples and waves inspired the smooth curves of this product. Acquatinta is made in Italy following and honoring the traditions of the Murano glass makers.
