This is the first collection of lights designed by Emanuel Gargano, and was inspired by his birthplace near Assisi, in the Italian region of Umbria. e designs are in sed with the specific natur e and culture of this special place. Rather than a empting to illuminate space with artificial light, the leitmo tif of this collection is to soften the shadows, to brighten the dark. Indeed, the light emanating from these designs comes from the darkness like a glimmer, a faint signal that never reveals its source. Its glow embodies an ever-radiant enigma, as if to emphasize and enhance the unique forms from which it ows. The designs’ raw materials have been processed and worked by hand, and feel as if they’ve tiptoed into the present from faraway memories of childhood and adolescence, experiences of family life in the countryside. eir resurgence from the darkness of the past is a manifestation of our human need to understand and enlighten ourselves by telling our own unique stories. More light objects than lamps, these creations are the fruit of Emanuel’s architectural vision and design experience, in which the element of light invariably plays a functional, decisive role in the modulation of space.
