Mauro Lipparini, 2010
Oyster Light, a light and hanging shell that it defines through the same elements that form it: material and shape. Two sheets of continuous saddle leather, pressed, ribbed, wisely worked take the concave and convexo shapes, and together jointed like a sandwich bring Oyster Light a solid and steady shell. It surprises the very light compactness generated by the technique and the own characteristics of the material, the saddle leather, bring Oyster Light stretched and gristly from the unexpected flexibility to the touch.
The pictures are illustrative and there may be slight chromatic variations in the realization.
