Giopato & Coombes

To Giopato & Coombes, design means creating a supernatural daydream, crystallizing the emotion behind conception and the astonishment of innovation, joining sculpture to experiments into the light phenomenon. The behaviour of light, its beauty and its techonology are the foundation of every project where a sophisticated grace meets noble materials.
Giopato & Coombes design exceptionally unique lighting fixtures that combine artisanal production methods with contemporary technology and materials, including LEDs, kevlar, and 3D printing. Their experimentation pushes the heritage of Italian glass-blowing forward into new, unexpected forms.

Gioielli

Sculptural appliques that are the result of perfect balance between the metal structure, an iconic, light setting, and the precious “gems” inserted inside it. In the picture, Gioielli 02 with Emerald Murano Glass.

Gioielli

In a direct reference and tribute to the painstaking work of the goldsmith, the Gioielli are composed of different combinations of “precious stones”: a disk in brass with a “raw” materic surface obtained through meticulous handwork done directly on the model; an emerald green “gem” in blown Murano glass with a particular “battuto” finish; the spherical crystal lens enclosed in a cylinder of shaped brass. In the picture, Gioielli 04 with Taupe Murano Glass.

Cirque

Lamps with slender thread-like structures in brushed brass, that change form to create infinite geometric compositions. The figure, suggesting circus gear, is interrupted by capsules that project continuous light. In the picture, Cirque Chandelier 4 Medium 2.

Cirque

Each capsule, made in ribbed glass with extremities in brass, crafted with a lathe using a very refined technique that starts with a solid block of the material, conceals light guides used in the automotive sector that make it possible to connect the LEDs contained in the ends of the capsule, conducting the light along the entire length. In the picture, Cirque Chandelier 1 Large 3.

Bolle

The lightness of the soap bubbles has become a metaphor for the immateriality of light. Bolle is a collection of lamps in transparent glass, where the illuminating brass bulb is suspending between the spheres, giving light to not only the space but also the curved surfaces, multiplying reflections to amplify the magical effect. Together with selected artisans, Giopato&Coombes look for the best manufacturetechnicque for every single project. The Bolle lamps are hand blown by local Venetian artisans using the “a lume” technique. The suspension lamps of the Bolle family are UL approved. In the picture, a bespoke composition of Bolle Pendant 04 and 06 Bubbles.

Bolle Frosted

The Bolle Frosted inverts the perception of the Bolle project. Whereas Bolle play with the emptiness, Bolle Frosted work with the positive volume of the spheres, creating satellites that seem to grow and move together through the space. The Bolle Frosted lamps are hand blown by local Venetian artisans using the “a lume” technique. In the picture, Bolle Frosted Chandelier 34 Bubbles.

Soffio

Soffio is a lamp of simple and elegant design, characterized by the contrast between the evanescence of one blow that generates the sphere of glass and the solidity of the structure that supports it: as light as a soap bubble, the sphere floating in the air, surrounds the light source. It’s just one blow, but it has to be perfect! Heart and structure of the project, the LED source, an high-quality technology extremely efficient, that emanates a warm and suffused light, in contrast with the minimal shape of the lamp. The suspension lamps of the Soffio family are UL approved. In the picture, Soffio Pendant 02 Large. It’s just one blow, but it has to be perfect!

Flauti

Our first light collection is made from Murano hand blown glass and turned brass, both high quality materials. Each module crystallizes a different breath and is unique, only vaguely similar to next production. Spontaneity and improvisation are part of the project, and are promoted as proof of the handmade. The traditional Muranese colours evoke the sunset of the Venetian Lagoon, a cornerstone of romance set in a world of technological advancement. The suspension lamps of the Flauti family are UL approved.
