His works of art are in many important worldwide collections, including the MoMA NY

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In c.1955 a fine Brazilian artist designed and made a lamp to illuminate a garden landscape designed by him. There is only a single register of the lamp: a small piece of journal with its photograph. That was the starting point to recreate the lamp and the magnificent light effect produced by it. In 2017 Analivia Cordeiro, the artist's collection curator and an artist herself, and Luciana Brito Galeria, that represents Cordeiro since 1997, both decided to recreate the original one, with contemporary materials and techniques

CHALLENGE:
In the first model, the architect and designer Andre Vainer reproduced the original one, with two lamps. The result was a good light and not so much of an effect regarding the shadings of light, but it was a very good starting point. I was hired to develop the product and produce a prototype of the lamp. I made models to establish the exact proportions then I came up with a simple solution: one simple LED round lamp that delivered a bright enough light. After finishing the pre-prototype, I turned on the light in a dark room - the result was stunning
