molo’s exhibit at Superstudio Piú

A series of natural brown paper caves, “grotta di carta”, have been constructed from stacked columns of flexible paper blocks. Mobile-like clusters of luminous paper clouds are suspended overhead. We are also showing urchin softlight with a new LED armature that will be available in the coming months.

molo introduces cloud softlight mobile – a new way of suspending cloud softlight. Taking inspiration from the wondrous mobile constructions of Alexander Calder, a mobile of luminous clouds can be suspended, moving with a gentle buoyancy in the air currents overhead. The mobile structure allow for a broad canopy of cloud forms, hung from a single point, to provide light and a sense of intimate enclosure. The hollow cloud forms are internally lit by LED light, making the sculptural three dimensional forms mysteriously radiant when viewed from any direction.

molo’s cappello lamp was recently installed at the Studio Museum Achille Castiglioni! cappello is lit by LED, shaded by a paper “cap” or cappello in Italian and is set upon a cylinder of soft white Carrara marble. The cylinder piece actually comes out of the hole bored through the marble block-shaped base for the iconic floor lamp designed by the Castiglioni brothers. molo’s first lamp designed with the marble core as a base is called love letter (now sold out) and utilizes a unique double-sided electroluminescent film as its lighting source. Both lamps are a tribute to the designers we admire.
