Born in Mendrisio, Switzerland in 1943, Mario Botta is a working architect and designer in the postmodern style. Studying at the Liceo Artistico in Milan and the University of Architecture in Venice, he has worked with the greats, Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn, designing houses and churches. His architecture features strong geometric forms, just like his lighting.
Like most of his designs, the Zefiro chandelier is made from metal tubing and folded perforated sheet metal, to create a striking geometric pendant lamp, at the crossroads between lighting and a sculptural mobile. The perforated metal sheet on this piece shows very minor ware and faint signs of age.
