Minimalist approach to traditional silhouettes defines Botero Lights by Masiero
For those of us who want to dust dangling crystals for someone else, this modern, urban approach to a chandelier is the perfect solution. I love how the trailer’s post is curvy in profile as it seems to turn from top to bottom before disappearing into a hemisphere base. Then, to continue the visual movement, graphic swirls emerge, balancing light votives at their ends. I love this Manuel Vivian design!
Although the Botero Chandelier is definitely a contemporary design, the traditional elements that characterize it are perfectly at home, surrounded by antiques in gilded metal and wood.
The Botero Sconce is a mini-repetition of the chandelier with two swirls and smaller cups that support the flower candles.
The Botero table lamp leaves the whirls behind but retains the hemisphere motif by transforming it into a shadow over the twisted base. It’s amazing how similar elements in each light can be so unique and differently interpreted.
The Botero floor lamp uses the same elements as the table lamp, but inverts the shadows for the lighting and the effect is flat. Whether pendant, table or floor, each lamp is a minimalist approach to traditional design, made of lacquered metal with polyurethane arms and pear shells.
