The handmade colored blooming skyline lamps are inspired by the ancestral relationship between growing cities and star constellations.
The pendant lamps – unique in color and shape – frame and evidence city structures. They are reverted towards the ground because they are imaginary cities. The dreamy falling skyline are built following star constellations. By connecting each single star of a constellation in order to create a wooden surrounding on the transparent top, the idea of a city wall is emphasized.
Each lamp shows on its top a wooden surrounding similar to an old city wall or a star constellation – real or not – it does not matter… all constellations are inventions.

Hillsideout [antique art design] is a joint project by Andrea Zambelli and Nat Wilms which came to life in 2009 out of a mutual concern and discomfort for the degradation of abandoned sites in the Italian Apennines. Hillsideout expresses the need to transform the state of uselessness but also forgotten stories into practical functionality.View designer’s page
