Switch on The light

The origins

Macchina della Luce emerged from the Luci d’Oro collection, and was also developed after reflecting on the colour of light: the golden light of the sun and fire; warm light, in which the concept of refraction began to take shape in Enzo Catellani’s mind and which he used later in other creations.

Whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well.

Lord Chesterfield

The making of

My past and what I built so far are part of me, but Enzo Catellani was born today, with the desire to travelling backwards to rediscover the primal instinct of doing, for the pleasure of creating.
