Dossofiorito's sophisticated light landscapes


Lightscapes

Partners Livia Rossi and Gianluca Giabardo cofounded Dossofiorito, a Verona-based, experimental design studio, just two years ago. Since launching, the duo has produced a handful of wonderfully playful designs, including the thoughtful Lightscape collection, which consists of colorful, hand-blown glass lights that can be expanded and contracted manually to reveal varying color combinations. 

Lightscape's minimalist lights were inspired by specific, shared memories in the designers'  history, and the glass layers combine to physically recreate these moments—such as the gray, amber, and yellow of a tawny Oregon field in autumn or the stormy blue, pale red, and green of a summertime storm in Venice. So beautifully clever!
