Design has always been inspired by the shapes and colours of nature and the sense of freedom that derives from it, giving life to a real creative zoo, a zoomorphic reality, where things are not exactly what they seems like. A new dimension, in a game of double reading and double function.
This way it happens that a table lamp, realized in brass finely crafted, can take the shape of a distinct and elegant ibis which, leaned on a structure that resembles a shrub, becoming a functional lighting element that furnishes and embellishes the room in which it is located thanks to its original presence.
Thus Bronzetto introduces the fascinating animal world in its lighting path, adding a touch of charm to the original design of its products. Here the company’s strengths (craftsmanship, research of materials and attention to detail) complement each other, creating a unique furnishing and lighting accessory.
This is how FAUNA05 is born: a table lamp with the structure in cast brass that represents an ibis in its natural environment, reproduced with extraordinarily faithful details. In addition to the great attention to detail and the careful choice of materials, what springs immediately at first sight is the pvc lampshade entirely covered with real coloured feathers, available in three version: antique pink, blue sky and moss green.
FAUNA05 belongs to the Brass Brothers Eclectic collection: here nature is the absolute protagonist and inspiring muse. Small tables and lamps rest on columns reminiscent of bamboo or wild-rose stems; owls, turtle shells, horns, snakes become ornaments for lamps and appliqués, recalling fascinating exotic swamps.
Thanks to the Bronzetto remarkable craftsmanship and expertise in the processing of material, brass is bevelled with micro-castings, lost wax or earth castings in order to create particular surfaces with a rough and irregular appearance that perfectly reflect the imperfect uniqueness of the elements of nature.
Stems covered with bark and thorns become the structures and arms for table and floor lamps and furnishing accessories, transforming every single product into unique and original piece of art.
The sensual and elegant shapes of this eclectic collection meet the exotic taste and the attention to luxury details characteristic of the modern jungle-themed atmospheres. Nature transforms itself in unique artefacts, realized in the most natural version of brass or in the most daring processes.
FAUNA05 feathers have been produced and supplied by Mazzanti, Florentine company which boasts an 80 years experience in the processing of real feathers. Leader in the European market, the most famous worldwide fashion and furniture decor brands point to the firm. The patient and skilled hands of the Mazzanti artisans craft every type of feather transforming them into object that actually seems like real works of art.
