Lighting Collection by Enrico Zanolla

Italian based designer Enrico Zanolla has collaborated with VISO for his new lighting collection, "The Ruskii Ruskii Twist". The series of suspension lamps pay tribute to the beauty and uniqueness of the St. Basil cathedral in Moscow and were showcased at this years "Light+Building" exbo in Frankfurt, Germany.
During Zanolla's stay in Russia, he spent time observing and studying the constructive system of the domes in the cathedral. The difference in colour and size comes from symbolic meanings assigned to every single dome. The finalised designs are characterised by dynamic shapes, reflecting the movement of a candle and at the same time containing the modular constructive system used in the original domes.
