Collection Crypto Lighting Items by Patrizia Volpato Srl

Home > Winners > #106678


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Collection Crypto

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Lighting Items

INSPIRATION:
The idea that inspired the design for the Collection Crypto originates from nature, recalling ice stalactites in particular; yet here, differently to nature, the single elements end up being empty as the hand blown glass becomes the real protagonist.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Crypto is a modular lighting collection since it can expand vertically as well as horizontally, depending on how the single glass elements that compose each structure are distributed. The canopy of the items that expand horizontally is innovative in terms of design. The entire collection adapts to any location: either just a private house as well as hotels and all wide spaces. Light can come from spotlights placed above the glass pieces or else it can be inside the glass elements.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The end user is the one who has the last word on how the final installation will be composed and therefore it is the final client who ultimately adds value to the finished product, adapting it to a specific location and to personal taste: the beauty of this composition is in fact that the final result is always different.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The design project was carried out in Venice, in particular in the island of Murano, known for its artisan glass masters and it took approximately 6 months to get to the first final result starting from the initial concept.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The peculiarity of Crypto items stands in their vibrant blown glass that enables light to spread in many directions in a very soft way. Production occurs by means of a completely handcrafted process which leads to a different final result each time. There are 7 different moulds with 3 different cuts, for a total of 21 shapes, to which also different shades can be added. Shades are purposely shown as more intense in the higher part, close to the light source and less vivid towards the final lower part of each glass element.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Thanks to their modular entity, Crypto installations can largely vary in terms of sizes, starting from the diameter of a single element which is 200mm and going to more complex compositions that can extend up to 3500mm horizontally and even more, or else 9000mm vertically and still even more. Light can come as either G9 bulbs or built-in LED inside the glass elements or else it can be designed as LED spotlights above the glass elements.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research behind this product is focused on design and functionality, by means of aesthetics and materials. The main objective was to create an innovative glass texture, defined as vibrant: an hybrid version between a totally smooth surface and a hammered one. To reach such goal, empirical experimentation was carried out, involving two main tools: glass moulds in different materials and management of the glass blowing process. The result is a glass type capable of breaking light in a soft way, differently from the classical frosted glass.

CHALLENGE:
The most complex challenge during the creation process was finding the balance between the calibration of the moulds and the glass blowing method to obtain the exact wanted vibrant texture. What guided the process was the concept of molecular structures where singles elements combine to give one whole item, on one side and the know-how of artisan glass master on the other side.

NAME:
Patrizia Volpato Srl

PROFILE:
Having its headquarters well rooted in the Venetian province, the brand Patrizia Volpato rises from an artisanal company born in 1980 and focused on the production of high-quality decorative lamps within the design lighting sector. Almost forty years later, whilst still referring to the ancient craftsmanship of glassblowing typical of Murano island, it became an exceptional blend of traditions and modernity with elegant mixes of different styles that embrace the most contemporary concepts too. Today the Company designs and produces its own collections as well as custom-made fixtures for its Italian and foreign clients such as: general contractors, architectural firms, international hotels, contractors of interior design (fit-out companies), cruise ships, furniture companies, well-known fashion brands and private residences. With a technical office well trained to design light fittings starting from simple ideas and sketches or even from detailed drawings made both by Interior Designers and directly by customers too, Patrizia Volpato is totally focused on its clients’ satisfaction. For this reason, it offers a 360° consultancy, beginning with the feasibility studio, going through the executive project and getting to the finished product, using 3D modelling tools for realistic renderings, as well as refined photographs that are submitted to the customer for final approval. Over the years the Company has acquired specific skills related to the wide range of materials and manufacturing processes this professional field requires and therefore it can guarantee exceptional results exploiting most resources that can be found in the market, such as: glass, crystal, methacrylate, LED, fiber optics, Barrisol sheets, metal and more. Efficiency, expertise, flexibility, reliability, accuracy and care for details are the founding values of the company and represent the elements that characterize the exclusive creations signed Patrizia Volpato, where technicality and artistry support one another to offer unique and prestigious solutions. Recently Patrizia Volpato proved to be even more farsighted by developing a proprietary monitoring platform quick and easy to use, that, by means of Bluetooth technology, enables to manage the switching on and off as well as many other functions of any chandelier. Patrizia Volpato actually presents itself as a brand capable of offering “New forms of light”, yet never forgetting the importance of traditional artisanal working methods from which it gets constant inspiration for its original and authentic installations.
