Luigi (o mi amate voi)
GAETANO PESCE for BOTTEGA GHIANDA
This year, Bottega Ghianda presents a daring operation: Sozzi contacted Master Gaetano Pesce to re-interpret the Luigi (o mi amate voi) bookcase prototype created in the early 1980s but long out of production. The innovation combines the satin-finished black beechwood structure with coloured resin plates, illuminated by an LED light that provides a translucence with magical resonances. Pesce enlightens Bottega Ghianda.
Different in history and training, Sozzi and Pesce share a taste for intellectual curiosity, a refusal to settle for what is already made and known, the courage to explore new possibilities and a willingness to deal with materials (wood for Pesce, resin for Sozzi) that are far from the usual, in an unexpected and surprising alchemy.
