Physalis flowers are known for their lantern shape: an organic architecture, a light envelope, something as beautiful as it is fragile. Delicate Pulegoso glass is used to represent the gossamer leaves which cover the fruit. The tiny bubbles captured within the glass sparkle when lit and give an ethereal ambiance. Imperceptible, delicate and shimmering.

Cristina Celestino was born in 1980 in Pordenone. In 2005, after graduating from the School of Architecture at IUAV University of Venice, she worked with prestigious design studios, focusing on interior architecture and design. In 2009 she moved to Milan, founding her brand Attico Design two years later and opening her own design studio in 2013. The fil rouge of her creations is clear, rigorous use of geometry, in a process of careful manipulation of traditional forms: her projects also feature variations of scale and brilliant little inventions, playing with conventional messages and hidden, unexpected meanings.
