This partcular collecton of objects is the result of the applicaton of the concept of lightness, undestood as weight limitaton and electromagnetc radiaton.

The weight limitaton is obtained through the use of materials, some of them optcally perceived as light, such as mirror and glass, others really weighty materials, such as metal and wood, are made light through a reducton of dimensions and sectons.

The rigid and feeible OLED surface light sources further lighten these objects making them useful but discreet presences.
