Like a volcanic rock that when it breaks apart reveals a jewel within, Rock is an interplay of surprises and contrasts. Mysterious and severe outside, diamond-bright and iridescent inside. Outside, the dark version is rough with a scattering of golden motes, whilst inside, it shimmers, smooth and mother of pearl-covered. The white version assumes a new personality to fi t in with each different use, a precious stone that highlights in particular its asymmetric facets, evolved according to a casual logic. They refl ect the light?s rays in the internal surface as in a crystal, producing a surprising and unforgettable effect. This is an object that does not go unnoticed from any point of view. The hanging version focuses its light on the space below, while the new fl oor version, of surprising proportions, can focus its light band to function as a reading lamp as well as sending light upwards. Rock is a striking component of public or domestic furnishing. Its light focuses on the space below, highlighting it. Whether alone or in a group, it is always a protagonist, but its presence is never invasive or excessive.
