A project inspired to one of Leonardo da Vinci’s machines.
Nowadays everything is in motion. For motion we mean “velocity”. Is a need for survival. We often forget the meaning of pausing to “think”, to “meditate” and “reflect”. There is no time for anything!
A man named Leonardo Da Vinci lived daily with the pleasure of observation, contemplation and elaboration. Exploring every field of science and technology, Leonardo was a forerunner of many future inventions.
In this product we have transformed his “elevating machine” in a lamp named: Leonardo Lamp.
You can either lift or lower the lamp’s arm thanks the cogwill’s mechanism. The latter closely reproduces Leonardo’s celebrated drawing.
Measurements: 40x60x20 cm
Materials: Ramin wood
