Pensando ai poeti Sufi (2000)

Michele De Lucchi,

The collection of 9 Sufi table lamps, produced in 2000, is a numbered, signed and limited series of 18 for each model. The names of the lamps are: Rumi, Yahya, Bayezid, Nizami, Ghazzali, Nuri, Hafi, Junaid, Shibli . The lamps consist of a metal base and two mouth-blown diffusers made of Murano glass. The inner shade is made of sand-blasted white flashed glass. The outer diffusers are produced in 9 shapes with different finishes, 5 of which have an engraved decoration by grinding. "How can write about light, a thing so great that its beauty touches on the image of God? How can we talk about a thing that involves our very existence, birth and death? How can we talk about light when all would be darkness, and perhaps really is, in the places of places and in the time of time? About something that passes through time and space to reach places unreachable by the human mind? How ca we talk about something whose variation assumes every possible nuance of feeling? I cannot. I am too small and superficial and I have neither the strength of mind nor words to express a concept the very thought of which sends my head spinning: the source of light lies in the shades of darkness, where life originates. In Sufi philosophy, light has the same texture as the spirit. I can only, scarcely, under stand that it is so precious, delicate and sublime that it must be treated as the most sacred and transcendent thing that we as men can ever perceive." ā€” Michele De Lucchi, March 2000
