This project is characterized by a deliberate hark back to the 1970s: the lamp becomes a flower, the most classic of flowers with a centre and petals radiating around it. Perhaps it is a daisy, barely outlined in the abstract sharpness of the metal and the glass, but poetically evoked by the shadow that is projected on the wall or ceiling. It is a flower in the contemporary razzle-dazzle of flowers which is not created by the décor but by its structure. A flower that is a symbol and a metaphor: "deck the walls of your homes with flowers!"
- Marco Romanelli
Marta Laudani and Marco Romanelli, architects, have been collaborating since 1988 in their associated offices of Rome and Milan. They work in the fields of design, interior decorating (their works have been published in the most important international magazines and, in 2004, they participated in the Biennale of Architecture in Venice in the section "Notizie dall'Interno") and exhibit design (in 2002-2003 "Gio Ponti: a World" at the London Design Museum, Rotterdam Nal and Triennial of Milan; in 2007 "Bruno Munari" in Tokyo). In 2001, in Rome, they designed the restoration of the "Museum of Roman Civilization" for Fiat-Engineering.
Both flank their design work with an intense critical meditation on topics involving living and design: Marta Laudani has lectured at the Sapienza in Rome; Marco Romanelli has been editor of both Domus and Abitare.
Established in 1945 by the master Giuseppe Ostuni, Oluce is the oldest Italian lighting design company that is still active today. In the 1950s, Oluce quickly reached an international public through Domus magazine, thanks to the vision of Gio Ponti.
For many years, Vico Magistretti was art director and chief designer of the company, conferring his unmistakable stamp and a legacy of worldwide recognition. With international design awards dating back to 1956, many of Oluce's products are on permanent display in the New York Museum of Modern Art.
Oluce's products have contributed to the history of lamp design through the genius of designers like Vico Magistretti, Tito Agnoli, Joe Colombo, Marco Zanuso and more recently, Laudani & Romanelli and Nendo.
