Ripple - a moving light designed by Poetic Lab for Lobmeyr from Poetic Lab on Vimeo.
Poetic Labs Ripple Light and LucyDs Liquid Skin will be exhibited at Fabrica del Vapore, where a major exhibition, curated by Beppe Finessi and entitled SALONESATELLITE . 20 Years of New Creativity, will present an anthology of pieces from the Satellite’s history that have gone into production.
LOBMEYR found the prototype of Ripple at Poetic Labs Satellite booth in 2014 and together a most successfully new concept of moving light has been developed.
Designed by LucyD in 2001 the concept of Liquid Skin is based on elementary human gestures of drinking from a fountain with bare hands. The glass functions as a thin layer between ones hands and liquids. It creates awareness and leads the way to new rituals of drinking. One sample can be inspected at the permanent design collection of the MoMA/New York besides Apples first iPod.
The item is not in production at the moment, but maybe will be soon...
Since 1998 the SaloneSatellite has been the international springboard for young designers under 35 and a meeting place for designers and manufacturers in the furniture industry. A 20th edition dedicated more than ever to design, and celebrated with a collection designed expressly for the occasion, and by a major exhibition in the city.
