The integration of design, art, and light in architecture dates back to a long time ago, and maybe this is the reason why lamps are no longer simply items which emit light. Rather, they have become true light sculptures which confer special personalities different environments.
With DOME, Bover decided to take the light out of the object, allowing it to become a light sculpture designed to receive and emit a delicate light, a play of shadows and nuances that enrich the space for which they were created.
Developing this project with Benedetta has allowed us to reflect on the art of lighting, on how to reinterpret light and on the creation of products with a more artistic approach and a less industrial look. It has also allowed us to be swept away and do what we really like to do. These light sculptures are completely handmade and they are entirely produced in the Bover Barcelona HQ. More than 170 big and small wood fragments are wisely intertwined and sewn together one by one, resulting in a kind of jigsaw puzzle.
