Fondato nel 2018 dall’architetto Paolo Gambarelli,  Lunante trae linfa costante dalle nozioni acquisite in campo architettonico e da una innata propensione e profondo amore per tutte le attività manuali. Il disegno, la realizzazione e la presentazione di questi gioielli sono da considerare come una delle tante possibili espressioni della mia formazione. Ciascun gioiello deve dunque essere considerato come una costante trascrizione e rilettura semantica delle forme e dei concetti del nostro vissuto quotidiano. Uso la geometria come un metalinguaggio a volte serio a volte divertito, intelligente o sciocco, come sarebbe bello fossero le vite di tutti gli esseri umani.

Il nome Lunante indica una diversa prospettiva, un nuovo modo di lavorare con la curiosità per la ricerca di nuove forme espressive rimanendo nei legami e nelle peculiarità di un’arte da indossare. Nella consapevolezza di una evoluzione fatta di corsi e ricorsi storici, i miei gioielli vanno considerati come pre-minimalisti: alla totale semplicità e riduzione del numero di materiali impiegati resiste ancora la forza espressiva della sola composizione geometrica.

Founded in 2018 by architect Paolo Gambarelli, Lunante draws a constant lymph from the notions I acquired in architectural knowledge and from my innate propensities and deep love for manual work; the design, the construction and the presentation of these jewels are part of the many expressions of my training. Every jewel shall be considered as a constant translation and semantic reinterpretation of forms and concepts of our everyday life. I use geometry as a metalanguage, sometimes serious, sometimes amused, sometimes intelligent or silly, and it would be nice if every life were like this.

Lunante  means a different perspective, a new way of working with curiosity to research new expressive forms remaining into the bonds and peculiarities of a weareable art. Aware of an evolution made of historical recurrences, my jewels should be considered as pre-minimalists: the expressive power of the geometric composition resists to a total simplicity and amount of materials employed.
