Sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce of Rome, with the patronage of the Order of Architects of Rome and Province, and with the collaboration of the "Center for the enhancement of Roman Travertine" within Casaidea 2012Nine architects designers propose their projects for review "Objects used in Roman travertine".
Lamps, vases, small tables, chairs, coat racks made by companies in the sector, with this initiative we want to show that "a stone which the ancient Roman travertine can be profitably used also in contemporary forms of today's home" and thus promote the qualitative growth this specific production sector of Lazio, made up of a multiplicity of small and medium-sized enterprises. Among the proposed project: Agrippina Violetta Canitano (www.violettacanitano.it)
Agrippina the lamp shade is the grandmother, the stereotype par excellence of the table lamp, which, for the occasion, is stylized into a sign, becoming a perforated floor, illuminated and made of a noble material such as Roman travertine. On the back of the panel, is arranged a bar and a metal clip, capable of supporting the lamp holder and the relative lamp, the system also makes it easy disassembly and replacement of the latter. The use of Roman travertine gives this object a thickness of style and a substance that enhances the shape at the same time, the working floral highlights the natural streaks and shades of a classic material, modern look. Agrippina blends in with the style as classic and modern styles in an original form and gently sophisticated.
