To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Cobra lamp, several designers were asked to reinterpret, with their personal inspiration, its character with a graphic texture. A tribute from all of them to Elio Martinelli who designed the lamp in 1968. 23 creations in limited edition of 30 signed and numbered copies, to which is added the texture of the young designer winner of the competition dedicated to young people under 35, Elena Volpi.
“Tattoo” is the ensemble of my different activities as architect, designer, sculptor and painter. My theme fights all forms of oppression, and the quest for individual freedom is omnipresent. I would like to launch a message of hope and reflection through my character called Lola. These are bronze sculptures painted white – a color that represents purity and hope. Lola has lucky tattoos. Most of her tattoos express the need for equality between men and women throughout the world. A message of women’s freedom, a message of freedom to dress, a message of religious freedom and a message of tolerance. Her tattoos are symbols of peace. I love the Cobra lamp; it is round and white. The sphere is a symbol of union. I think it fits perfectly with my theme. It is a great honor to be able to apply this message of peace and freedom on the Cobra”. Donia Maaoui
