TERRESTRE – Bianchini & Lusiardi Associati- is a project aimed to emphasize the transformation of matter through the creation of handmade objects produced in limited series.
T E R R E S T R E | RE-LAMPS
The RE-LAMPS are based on the idea to create a family of light fixtures made in a new material, which combines various sustainable components: paper, recycled cardboard, vegetable fibers, natural pigments, and wood.
The interaction between material and light source generates the aesthetic quality of each lamp. All Re-lamps shades are hair-dried – without any artificial drying process – they are lightweight, solid, colored and resistant to impacts.
The unique quality of each lamp originates from a design concept and manufacturing process aimed to emphasize its physical presence, which includes the use of mineral pigments, the addition of natural fibers, custom-designed surface textures, and a beeswax coating. The material radically changes its appearance depending on its interaction with light. Every light fixture is a handmade and unique piece, numbered and signed.
All lights are CE-marked and compliant with current European safety and electrical regulations.

T E R R E S T R E | TERRE SERIES
Resulting from decades of research and practice, the ‘Terre’ series will consist of modular elements inspired by decorative techniques from the 17th and 18th centuries, such as stucco and scagliola.
