PAPYRUS

The lamp Papyrus is inspired in the greatness, elegance and sophistication of the Art Deco influence in Egyptian art. Its geometric figures, rigid and pure lines reflect the strength of this culture. Likewise, the patterns engraved on the acrylic represent the use of papyrus to tell stories. Material wise, the brightness of brass alludes to the luxury and the ostentation of the moment. 

Influenced by cubism, constructivism, futurism and Art Nouveau itself, among others, Art Deco was characterized by its innovative style with hard lines and the rigidity of its forms present in the monumentality of its compositions. Elegant, functional and modernist, the symbolism of Art Deco revolves around progress, urban and organization, making decoration as its priority.

The artistic current was inspired by global concepts from the rustic tribal designs of Africa, the elegant sophistication of Paris, the geometry and sculpture used in ancient Greco-Roman architecture, and the representational forms of ancient Egypt with the stepped pyramidal structures. The Egyptian design focuses largely on decorative patterns, luxury, geometry and brightness motifs that fill the space and exalt the purity of the forms. Art deco finds its roots in ancient Egyptian art.

It is characterized by the luxury of its smooth, shiny and untextured materials. Metals, glass and patterns that fill the space. The ornamental profusion, the frequent use of lines and pure geometric forms in a repetitive way to generate patterns. In addition, it seeks to exalt some aspects of nature such as bright sunbeams and speed.
