Luigi Caccia Dominioni 'Sasso' lamps The rare series of Sasso Stone lamps, designed in by Luigi Caccia Dominioni, can be seen as amongst the most reductivist and forward-thinking designs of their time. The Sasso lamps are distilled to their essence, with nothing superfluous but still rich in a mechanical and a spiritual essence. The lamps have a poetic functionality, animating interiors and interacting with their human inhabitants as a character in a play. Luigi Caccia Dominioni emerged in the wake of World War II's devastation with an intense desire to make something new. Innovation in materials and new ideas proliferated in art and technology which lead in turn to conceptual designs and innovation in architecture and furniture. Caccia Dominioni was a brilliant designer whose work was conscientious of precedent but struck new ground by balancing design and function in his designs with a supreme attention to detail. Decades before, in and facing the turmoil of World War I, Marcel Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel with a bar stool to otherworldly effect, proclaiming a new art: the Readymade. In the Sasso lamps, Caccia Dominioni performs a similar alchemy converting found objects to functional design. Lampshades originally made for Singer sewing machines and carefully selected river stones of onyx are connected by a chromium-plated machined rod. The lamp has a dual role as a symbol of automation and progress, but also reflects the pulled-from-the-rubble nature of Milan as it rebuilt itself after the August Allied bombings. This dichotomy is clearly evident in the lamps as the viewer reconciles disparate forces: the lamp alternately conveys permanence and movement, refinement and decay. These elements, lampshades and armatures, are inserted into naturally contoured stones, a chunk of metamorphosed rock that emerges from deep in the earth in a transformed and beautiful state. The metamorphic design of the Sasso lamps which emanates from the ground through found materials and into mechanical function is nearly unique in the scope of modernist design.
