IT’S THANKS TO THE CREATIVE FLAIR OF GREAT ITALIAN DESIGNERS THAT 8-LIGHT CREATIONS HAVE TAKEN SHAPE.
“I’m a doctor with a passion for design.
But first and foremost, I’m a designer.”
Adele, Hugo and Jack are the products of Giulio Gianturco‘s creative mind and design skills.
A degree in medicine and surgery, a great love of design. Regattas introduced him to a variety of technical materials. This sparked a desire to design a number of pieces for his own home, and soon enough, orders were coming in from friends, too. As a result, Giulio Gianturco was prompted to produce his creations in small series. This passion would lead him to abandon his surgical career in order to fully embrace his muse: design.
There have been many milestone collaborations since the ’90s: Boffi, Foscarini, Agape, to mention but a few. Giulio Gianturco’s creativity and innovation have received recognition on numerous occasions with major awards: Designpreis of the Federal Republic of Germany in 2007; the Archiproducts Design Award 2016 and, lastly, ADI Design Index 2017 and 2018, the latter with our very own Adele.
Each creation is a journey, from the idea to production.
To come up with Adele – the first project to come from the collaboration with 8-light – Giulio Gianturco produced a series of preparatory drawings and tested various Tecno gel® consistencies, in addition to different shades of colour, until he was happy he had the very best combination.
The result is here today for all of us to see.
There’s nothing quite like proper lighting to change the mood of a room, which is exactly what the objects conceived and designed by Giulio Gianturco manage to do.
