Bolle

District - Bolle 04 Pendants by Giopato & Coombes

Bolle 04 Pendants

Giopato & Coombes

The lightness of the soap bubbles has become a metaphor for the immateriality of light. Bolle is a collection of lamps in transparent glass, where the illuminating brass bulb is suspending between the spheres, giving light to not only the space but also the curved surfaces, multiplying reflections to amplify the magical effect. Together with selected artisans, Giopato&Coombes look for the best manufacturing techniques for every single project. The Bolle lamps are hand blown by local Venetian artisans using the “a lume” technique.

Flauti

District - Flauti 01, 08 & 11 Pendants by Giopato & Coombes

Flauti 01, 08 & 11 Pendants

Giopato & Coombes

Giopato & Coombes’ first light collection is made from Murano hand blown glass and turned brass, both high quality materials. Each module crystallizes a different breath and is unique, only vaguely similar to next production. Spontaneity and improvisation are part of the project, and are promoted as proof of the handmade. The combination of matching modules, use different traditional Murano glass blowing techniques and processes. The traditional Muranese colours evoke the sunset of the Venetian Lagoon, a cornerstone of romance set in a world of technological advancement.

Cirque

District - Cirque 08 Vertical Pendant by Giopato & Coombes

Cirque 08 Vertical Pendant

Giopato & Coombes

Lamps with slender thread-like structures in brushed brass, which change form to create infinite geometric compositions. The figure, suggesting circus gear, is interrupted by capsules, which project continuous light. Each capsule, made in ribbed glass with extremities in brass, crafted with a lathe using a very refined technique that starts with a solid block of the material, conceals light guides used in the automotive sector that make it possible to connect the LEDs contained in the ends of the capsule, conducting the light along the entire length.

Gioielli

District - Gioielli 04 by Giopato & Coombes

Gioielli 04

Giopato & Coombes

Sculptural appliques that are the result of perfect balance between the metal structure, an iconic, light setting, and the coloured, precious “gems” inserted inside it, in a direct reference and tribute to the painstaking work of the goldsmith. The Gioielli are composed of different combinations of “precious stones”: a disk in brass with a “raw” material surface obtained through meticulous handwork done directly on the model; an emerald green “gem” in blown Murano glass with a particular “battuto” finish; the spherical crystal lens enclosed in a cylinder of shaped brass.
