manifesto

Light escapes the physical boundaries of the fixture trying to contain it, and traces the ultra-physical perimeter of the object by casting a circular halo.

This collection, designed by Timo Ripatti and developed by Axolight, is the means through which the company turns to the world of design to exhibit its concept of light. Hence the name Manifesto. The Axolight collections are loaded with cultural references – most recently Manifesto’s clear abstractionist and neoplasticist inspiration – and are characterized by stylistic audacity and aesthetic balance. In Axolight’s vision, the lamp body represents the physical extension of the design, while the light the ‘ultra-physical’ one. Never before has this concept been so centered as in Manifesto.

The project stems from a creative play of shapes, which offers us the opportunity to experiment and develop new paths of light.

When the light is off, the lamp manifests itself as a sculpture affixed to the wall. When the light is on, it is surrounded by a luminous halo that redraws its boundaries and enhances its emotional impact.

 

With Manifesto (2022), Cut (2019) and U-Light (2017), Axolight and Timo Ripatti realize their third common project and establish one of the most important partnerships in the world of contemporary design light. In previous projects for Axolight, Timo Ripatti created objects with three-dimensional shapes.

Manifesto, on the other hand, is a work that appears as a bas-relief emerging from the wall, in which all the constituting elements are related to each other according to the proportions of the golden section. Expression of Axolight’s renewal process in recent years, Timo Ripatti is certainly one of the most intriguing and engaging designers of our day.
