MAEHWA COLLECTION

INTO THE BLOOM

Each of us has experienced, in our lifetime, a sensation that words cannot grasp. It’s when we hold our breath lost in a whirlwind of events, and, all of a sudden, we perceive an inner calm, born from a pure connection with nature.

In a park in Seoul, we found ourselves in an emotional turmoil for what was happening around us, and suddenly, we remained suspended for a moment. People of all ages, together with us, were turning their heads up to gaze at the plum blossoms, with their open corolla or with small spherical buds still closed, waiting for them to vibrate in the breeze. Subtle whispers of wonder arose spontaneously.

In the Korean language, maehwa is plum blossom. It’s a delicate word, revealing the unexpected gift of wonder.

The project develops on the relationship between nature and abstraction, searching for a compositional balance between the elements, playing with extension and presence across space.

In the natural inspiration, the leafy branches laden with blossoms were filling the space creating their own composition. This has become a reference in designing the compositional structure of the Maehwa collection.

Maehwa lamps’ composition reveals a tridimensional sinuosity, where glass bubbles with their organic sphericity follow one another. Each sphere embraces the light source, supported by a cable that flexes slightly, like a pistil protected by a corolla not bloomed yet.

The same feeling of softness can be found in the lighting modulation. The glass of the spheres, hand-blown with “a lume” technique, modulates the light from the source, thanks to its surface as with a glace icing-like effect.
