Kartell Bloom modern pendant lamp by Ferrucio Laviani. Sophisticated, brilliant and multi-faceted, the Bloom lamp is a mosaic of refractions, a perfect fusion of various personalities within a single form, that combine to create the body and lighting effect of the lamp. Bloom blossoms forth in a scintillating and lavish cascade of crystalline flowers. The Bloom pendant lamp was designed by the notable Italian designer Ferruccio Laviani. It is made by Kartell in Italy.

The Kartell Bloom Lamp is composed of a polycarbonate tubular framework entirely encrusted with tiny double corolla transparent polycarbonate flowers. The result is an industrially produced lamp with the form and stylistic complexities of the unique hand-made artifact. Bloom comes in an original hanging version, a cylindrical version suggestive of the silhouette of an hour glass figure. There are three single colors for this lamp: total transparency and opaque white for a refined ethereal effect, plus a sexy pink and black mix. A series of bulbs positioned along the internal framework diffuses beams of light through the petals and reflects off the faceted surfaces radiating a thousand reflections. A new way of interpreting the traditional lamp with that special added touch. The Kartell Bloom lamp is a veritable work of art that furnish and fill a room all on its own, creating an atmosphere of sparkling splendor.

The Kartell Bloom lamp was designed by Ferruccio Laviani. Ferrucio Laviani is part of a generation of young Italian designers who came to prominence in the early 90's when the Memphis movement made its mark on international design. Born in 1960, Laviani studied both architecture and design in Milan, graduating with a degree in architecture in 1986. Soon thereafter, he took part in the "12 Newcomers" Memphis collection in 1986 and the "Living on Earth" Memphis collection in 1987, launching his career with ties to the colorful and idiosyncratic design movement. Laviani went on to design whimsical, colorful furniture and objects that reminds us of its exuberant and expressive mission. Laviani's Orbital Lamp of 1991, perhaps his best known design, used color-saturated biomorhic shapes for the glass shades, and an angular, tapering metal base, bringing to mind the organic emphasis and optimism of the '50s, while his Max table combines multi-use practicality with his signature curvilinear forms. Ferruccio Laviani marks the transition between his generation and those before him through his collaborations with his elders and mentors. He's worked with Kartell, Foscarini, Achille Castiglioni, and Ettore Sottsass. Along with his talented colleagues, Laviani exemplifies the best of Italian design, present and future.
