the fragile concrete and stucco lights

Sturdy metal profiles with embedded LEDs present and protect The Fragiles, a series of spherical cement and stucco sculptures made with balloons.

Designer Davide Giulio Aquini spreads pure cement and stucco, or a mixture of the two, over colourful balloons to give rise to a diverse collection of shells or caps: the Fragiles. This results in shapes with jagged edges, rough on the outside and smooth inside, each unique in diameter and with imperfections: cracks, craters, valleys, chips, wrinkles.
