Live Bid! Glass Atollo Lamp by Oluce
Take home this exclusive Atollo lamp in Murano glass by Oluce. For many years now, Atollo has no longer been a lamp, or rather, it has no longer been just a lamp. It has become a myth, an icon—one of the most well-known symbols of Italian design in the world and one of the very few products that people recognize and call by its brand name.
Designed by Vico Magistretti in 1977, it was awarded the Compasso d'Oro in 1979 and became, from that point on, part of the permanent collections of the world's top design museums, as well as part of the interior design of many homes of people who appreciate fine furnishings and have a knack for selecting them.
Atollo's secret likely lies in the geometrical construction of its shapes: the cone on the cylinder and the semisphere on top. A luminous sculpture from which nothing can be removed, and to which nothing can be added. Inimitable.
This object has been made available for the 2017 Fuoricinema event.
The art4sport nonprofit is an Italian organization that believes in sports as therapy for both physical and psychological recovery for children and young people with artificial limbs and prostheses.
Its mission is to economically aid the families of children with prostheses and provide practical/organizational support so the children can play and have fun through sports in their everyday lives.
The art4sport association is inspired by the story of Bebe - Beatrice Vio, who at the age of 11, sadly lost all four of her limbs. Despite this, she returned to her former life within a year, motivated by the desire to practice fencing. Bebe’s family thus looked into sports prostheses and sports equipment for children with this type of disability and found a disconcerting lack of support from the Italian National Health Care System.
Out of this shortcoming came art4sport, an association that could act as a point of reference for her and other children with the same problems and the same wish to play sports.
