Lighting lampara-GINKO-2

The project for the realization of this lamp came from the need of one of our clients to have in her garden a beautiful lamp, to hang on the outside and withstand weather of Madrid. Her garden was surrounded by trees and literally told me she wanted to see the lamplight like the sunlight as it filters through the leaves of the trees.

This client has two swings Leaf ( http://www.veronicamartinezdesign.com/creaciones/leaf/ ) and she wanted me to be the same natural inspiration and to produce the lamp in metal.

Visiting my sculptors who work for different projects in metal and wood, it occurred to me to make a “copy” of a very special tree. The Ginkgo tree is one of the oldest in the world, represents hope and eternal life. It is a living fossil, and is also the only tree that survived the Hiroshima bomb.

At first I thought the casting and production of this lamp would not be as laborious as it was at last, but seeing the result and especially working in every step of the production process, I am very happy and proud that I had been so.

Making-off

The professionalism and expertise of our sculptors, which are the same that produce our aluminum and bronze swing “Autumn Leaf” ( http://www.veronicamartinezdesign.com/creaciones/autumn-leaf/ ) and making the statue of Goya Film Awards in Spain, is key to the outcome and to see the Ginkgo lamp as a spectacular piece of functional art.
