On November 12th, the Cell collection designed by Patrick Naggar for French heritage brand Veronese, went up on display at Ralph Pucci New York City as part of an exhibition dedicated to the designer, entitled Reflections.
The two pieces that make up the collection – a suspension lamp and a wall lamp – derive from Naggar’s fascination with science and the unique shapes of living forms. Each lamp is handblown by Murano glass master artisans, with the suspended version composed of one piece of blown glass encasing an inner hand-stretched piece of Murano glass with gold leaf. The wall version also features a singular piece of blown glass, this time exposing a partial metal tube.
The Cell collection does its job of bringing together traditional artistry, modern technology, and contemporary design under Naggar’s talented hand.
