Dream Journey III is a Lighting made in a shape of Hot-Air Baloon.
This Lighting has a lot of dreams in one object only. The dream of flying and of touching the stars like in Méliès’ movie “Vers les étoiles” (1906) or of easy traveling like in the famous movie “Mary Poppins” (1964).
The research of objects in old movies which make dream and fly led to the cycle “Dream Journey”. The way to use material in combination with non-material that is similar to the technique of film celluloid, so frames which are positive and negative, permits the use of light in a different way also in design. Objet d’art which become functional for daily life are the result.
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
