This item makes part of the collection Mi piace by Artefare, the evolution of art and design expressed in Lecce limestone. This stone (in local dialect leccisu) is a kind of marly limestone spread throughout the province of Lecce (South-eastern-most Italy) and known for its easy of processing and particular expressive performance.
Massimiliano De Giovanni, a sculptor and designer from this south-eastern peninsular extension of the Apulia region, has been working local limestone for almost twenty years. Using artisan techniques, the local artist was able to make the most of the quality and versatility of Lecce limestone while creating this eclectic collection of unique, entirely handmade lamps and furnishing solutions.
