Alexander Purcell Rodrigues


Aare Wall Sconce in Stainless Steel is designed by Alexander Purcell Rodrigues for DeCastelli. The Aare Gorge in Switzerland is testimony to natural erosion, shaped by the last ice age. Here, a river originating from melting glaciers once carved deep into the rock, cutting to its core. Thus, little by little, light began working its way into the cracks, amid ancient limestone stratifications. The manual erosion technique used on the metal sheet of Aare is its modern echo, recreating the natural look of the rock along its surfaces. Thanks to a center slit, these wall sconces take on the archetypical form of earthly geography sculpted by ice, reproducing its prehistoric beauty, as if they too were forged centuries ago.
