Turning the tree shade into light
'Beyond the technological challenge, I strived for harmony between tool, culture and nature'. M. Ferroni
A portable lamp overcomes darkness in rural Mali. With a narrative that merges ethnography with design, the author traces the origin of the artefact evoking the cultural dimension of objects through such symbolic structures as language, religion and time. He finally tear down the modern notion of 'brighting space' with a new visionary concept: 'illuminate life'.
