Marcus Tremonto simply cannot sustain his creativity and we at yatzer can’t help but follow his adventures. Yatzereaders have already enjoyed in the past several of his “lightworks”, finding out that he always has a special way to surprise us. This time is all about Carbon 451 lamp, his latest project that was originally showed at Firenze during Super Design exhibition. The responsible for the birth of the lamp is usual suspect, gallery owner and culture agitator Patrick Brillet that asked Tremonto to use his imagination in order to create a lamp out of carbon fiber. It seems that the designer was easily convinced to utilize the best of the material’s physical properties, its strength and lightness.
Tremonto points out that the complexity of curves and required thinness of his carbon lamp could not be duplicated in any other material while still maintaining its ability to support itself completely. The curves of Carbon 451 are seductive indeed, producing the effect of soft ice-cream leaking from the roof! Carbon 451 was such a success that his creator is thinking to continue working on another monumental hanging light and a table, again keeping in mind these same properties to achieve illusions in form and weight. Carbon 451 can be viewed by appointment with Patrick Brillet at The Apartment in Notting Hill, London.
