Barlume, designed by Filippo Castellani for Incipit, is a set of one candleholder and two vases inspired by the most classic and iconic object of Italian tables and osterias. These stylised bottles are made from glass and come in a contrast combination of metal finishes and delicate transparent colours ranging from grey to light blue and fuchsia. The colours are applied using the ancient lustre varnish technique of the Venetian glassmakers. A minimal yet precious decoration perfect for creating a romantic atmosphere.
Italian designer Filippo Castellani was born in 1983 and graduated in 2010 in Industrial Design at the Università degli Studi di Firenze. He moved to London where he works as a product and industrial designer developing personal projects and collaborating with international companies.
