Mexican architect Adrián Cruz, graduated from the University of Florence, Italy, creates bold lighting under his Belgium–based eponymous studio. His exposure to resin began in Mexico City with objects his grandfather made—toys, buttons, and household products, as well as more artistic forms like flowers and insects. Now, he pairs his background in architecture with his foundation in resin art to develop lights, using his grandfather's technique, mixing colors inspired by his Mexican culture with natural materials like onyx and marble.
Inspired by the Renaissance floor plans of the villas, the Bulb is erected by two plates in crystal resin, displaying a weightless balancing act. The pedestal can be made in resin or sculpted in Mexican onyx. Due to craftsmanship of the resin and the infinite colored veins of the onyx, each piece is unique.
