Luca Corvatta Industrial Design







Left

Created to give you simple and functional lighting, Left can be placed on the floor or laid against the wall to produce different auras of light.
Simple interaction from just one on/off switch, which also works as a dimmer.
The length of the cable can be easily adjusted using clips.
With a limited edition production of just 60 pieces in two different woods (oak and walnut) it can be customized with a choice of one of six power cord colours.

My curiosity towards materials and a different design process led me to approch pottery.

The great complexity of the industrial design process quite often requires a lot of time (usually years), working with the collaboration of several professionals in order to bring the product to the market.

This collaborative process is really interesting and rewarding because it is based on sharing knowledge and on the creative dialogue in between parts. Unfortunately most of the time it doesn't allow space for spontaneity or improvisation.

In pottery, all the steps (ideation, development, realisation) and all the professionals of the design process converge into one person, and the time shrinks to a matter of hours. The clay also brings great freedom: after centering the material on the wheel, you can really do everything, with almost no limits, no restrictions. Furthermore, the tools you are using are the best you can ever find: your hands.

It almost feels like clay and hands allow you to "materially" think, to improvise.

In a year of practice and exploration I have created around 50 pieces. I'm still using most of them in my daily life, at home.
