Overlight

MARTA SANSONI - 2020

IVV DESIGN —

continuing in the search for new typologies, after OVERLAYS, here’s OVERLIGHT , a new centerpiece, with a plus that is LIGHT.


Mysterious and versatile object, suspended between aesthetics and function, poetry and practicality, OVERLIGHT “offers and brings” fruits, small desserts, friandises, sandwiches, bread, flowers, light. In short, what you want. In the “metamorphosis” that the object undergoes, assembling it differently in the various declinations and playful possibilities, this luminous “stand” can also be protected with a dome, a transparent bubble which can also separately cover the container placed at the top, or the plate which, however, is also the lid of the container-box, stackable and available in 4 sizes, where you can store food in the refrigerator and then heat it directly with a passage in the microwave before serving, and use the lid as an elegant dish, without ever lacking of aesthetic.
In short, a sort of intriguing tongue twister to present this dynamic project. Light, immaterial matter, element of life and pleasure, becomes part of this object.
It is without power supply with cable, but with a rechargeable battery, a way to bring Overlight anywhere in the house, in any environment, even outdoors, in Summer evenings.
On the tables, released from the forced positioning in relation to fixed lights, OVERLIGHT creates an enveloping and romantic atmosphere made of delicacy. It is a project that has to do with my tireless pursuit of kindness, poetry and lightness.
