Another way to touch light.
Minerae is a range of lamps based on a dialogue between raw and refined materials. A piece of iron ore lies on top of an anodised aluminium base, this meeting may look brutal at first sight, until, by moving the stone, you realise the surprising link those contrasting materials are sharing : controlling the light.
The light base senses a natural characteristic of this stone, calculating its position and reacting to it through luminosity, thus creating a new way to feel the light , making it becoming more physical, giving it weight.
Minerae is an invitation to interact with light in a tactile and intuitive way, creating a new sensitive relation between matter and function.
