Designer Davide Giulio Aquini spreads pure cement and stucco, or a mixture of the two, over colourful balloons to give rise to a diverse collection of shells or caps: the Fragiles.

"Once dry, the Fragiles can be freed, by letting the balloons deflate and 'peeling' them off." says Aquini.

This results in shapes with jagged edges, rough on the outside and smooth inside, each unique in diameter and with imperfections: cracks, craters, valleys, chips, wrinkles.

"The collection combines the unexpected and poetic fragility of cement and stucco with sturdy metal profiles hand made in Italy, which fulfill two functions: protecting the Fragiles and supporting LEDs."

"The light is thrown back by the inner surface of the shells, or passes through the slits and cracks, and over the irregularly toothed margins."
