Equilibrium is a collection of lighting designs by Studio Gonzalo Bascunan.

An essential and absolutely minimal­ist line made clear by the use of two geometric tridimensional shapes – the line and the sphere – which, with vari­ous combinations, give life to different light objects, each of them sharing the same substance.

A translucent glass sphere represents the perfection of form, a place of points in space that all have equal distance from a fixed point, the center. Equidistance as a synonym for union and balance; a concept that is emphasized by the position of the sphere which floats on the line in supernatural equilibrium.

THE IMPORTANCE OF LIGHT
The desire to conceive furnishings with deliberately minimalist tridi-mensional shapes has led to the use – in the composition – of a single color, white. The monochrome is carried out also through by the use of ultra-thin steel wires connected to walls and ceilings to suspend spherical or conical lamps. It is not only an element for hanging the objects on the wall, but enriches the design by outlining (almost imperceptibly) the perimeter of the lamp, thus creating an ethereal, soft and continuous space between the line and the sphere.

 

THE SITE-SPECIFIC COMPOSITION

The pendant lamps and floor lamps working together and independent evolve between the ceiling and the floor of the space revolving around the most perfect geometrical use.

The composition of lighting objects are designed for a specific space becoming a site specific installation that can be modulated as the number of lamps, the dimensions of each lamp allowing the shapes to com­pletely fill the space into an infinite composition.

The latest generation of LED bulbs, emits a soft, diffused and flattering white light, which allow for greater energy savings with a view to maxi­mum sustainability

 

 

THE ATACAMA DESERT SAND

This monotony is broken by the use, for some pieces, of solid elements made by sand, inspired by the land­scapes of the Atacama Desert and characterized by the warm colours of the earth. Sand is a material already used by the Studio for previous artistic productions and that will be the key of future productions too.
