Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The table lamp 'Cosa Nostra' is an sculptural lamp made in a highly polished acrylic glass and with a base in leather.

Table lamp dimension: L25 W25 H27cm.
Source of illumination: LED, wiring for US and European market available.

Observing from different angles the reflection creates the sight of one or more revolvers drawing in the acrylic glass: Impossible to understand which is the real or the reflected image.

We took a revolver, deadly and provocative, put it on display without any taboo, even illuminating it.
But at the same time locking it up in a solid block of acrylic glass, visible, fascinating but completely untouchable, useless.
The lamp is named after a sadly enough very famous killing machinery:
The Cosa Nostra.

Each lamp is hand signed and numbered by the artists (engraved). 100% handmade in Italy, comes with a “Certificate of Authenticity”.
The artworks by Barberini & Gunnell are regularly shown at international art fairs, such as PAD London, PAD Genève, PAD Monaco, Salon Art & Design New York, ArtMiami.

Artist Profile

Born: 2009

Hometown: Ancona

Based in: Ancona

The Atelier Barberini & Gunnell was founded by the architects and designers Francesco Barberini and Nina A. Gunnell as the result of a passion followed for a long period of time, creating artworks far from the industrial reality; one-off pieces and limited editions.

The choice of the best and most precious materials, the maniacal cure for detail are the basis of their modus operandi aiming to create timeless pieces.

Every artwork has its inspirational background, it’s story.
Gigantic Spiders as tables which pass by the forests of enormous Mangrove floor lamps, transparent, yet heavy glass Origami tables, Chained up tables which seem to revolt against the immobility of the four legs.
Abandoning the mere functionality and rediscovering emotions; from the warm perfume of wood, losing oneself in the transparent magic of crystal to the cold and sterile steel, thought by mankind for mankind, mirror polished symbol of progress.

Barberini & Gunnell collaborate with the auction houses Sotheby’s, Bonhams, Tajan, Dorotheum, international galleries Priveekollektie, Ammann and private collectors.

The bench Get Lost! in mirror-polished stainless steel, limited edition of 12, was selected by New York architect Peter Marino for the DIOR flagship store in London.
