By Candida Tabet
The Astral Collection project started with the idea of architect Candida Tabet, who had been collecting glass abajures and opaline glass to develop lighting pieces by stacking these antiques, in order to create unique designs with a contemporary language.
We were responsible, along with the architect, for the creation of 9 pieces, under the same premise. The aesthetic design, the technical solution, production and follow-up were the stages which we coordinated. Together with Marcoluz firm, who was responsible for the assembly, and with Guinter Parschalk's consultancy, during the period of one year these lighting pieces were carefully thought out until they achieved the desired result.
The Astral Collection was launched during the 2018 edition of the SParte fair, by the Firmacasa design store.
