Design Stories unveilS the LightSound project which was designed by Moreno De Giorgio in collaboration with Officity and NYXbyKarboxx. The creation process has brought us along on the road with the Italian designer to discover every single step that has allowed us to produce this unique solution that meets the needs for visual and acoustic comfort in the work place. From the hands of this craftsman of light, the resulting project assumes a triangular shape that is one part full with soft edges for the sound absorbing panel and the other, empty and angular for the LED light. LightSound, which presents itself in a clear and defined way, is intuitively tied to Moreno’s personal characteristics. It was born in the silent approach to the subject and has made its way with the designer’s confidence that the space is a working tool tainted by its users.
The office world changes with those who live in it. This happens as they are influenced by the different cultures and architectures they see in their travels. These frequent travels are what make the professionals quick, mobile and able to adapt to new ways of work and modern technology and yet office remains the constant where people need to exchange ideas and dialogues. This is the reason why LightSound intervenes in the space satisfying the need to been seen and heard. It provides two distinct and antithetical modules, a LED lamp that gives light and a sound absorbing panel, that are balanced in energy. The collaboration between these two divisions of the Quadrifoglio Group has led to the realization of a product that is both technical and design minded. It started from the creativity, study, technique, aesthetics, and finally from the alchemy of the sensations the designer finds. LightSound creates a dedicated space to the sound of light. This inserts a product that turns into clouds into the office habitat. It is an inherent and integrated organic element that is not part of the environment but part of the people who work there. The road travelled by Moreno has put him in the role of the gardener who observes and takes care of the lamp stems. He has sprouted a hidden technology and a beauty timidly exhibited in its forms. Between the kilometers and the tollbooths, Moreno’s words hang in the air: “I consider the design like a mental approach towards something useful that is developed, something that solves a need by its function. It is a balance that must consider the different components, a sometimes fortuitous mix, and a relationship with different ways of seeing the finished product through the eyes of the many players who are involved in its creation.”
