ABANICO WALL LAMP
Handmade in Mexico City through traditional processes of brass- and glass-working, this lamp reinterprets in physical geometry and ingenious design the indigenous Zapotec worldview of balanced duality: as above, so below; where there’s light, there’s equal darkness.
Taking inspiration from the sacred geometry of the tetrahedron, representing both fires as the source of light and the skin of the mythical Quetzalcoatl, each handmade lamp channels a rich and diverse cultural history and blends it with contemporary design for a truly stunning result.
Due to their handmade nature, each and every lamp is slightly different – adding to the uniqueness and magic of the piece.
Neon Mood is a passion project from Jimena Fernández del Busto, a Mexican designer from Cuernavaca, Morelos, and based in Mexico City. Jimena has worked as an art director for more than 7 years and developed her career as an industrial and interior designer alongside this. Her curiosity led her to explore ancient indigenous artistic traditions, in which sacred geometry and vibrant mythologies blend in uniquely surreal and spiritual forms.
Neon Mood represents Jimena’s translation of the light, colors and shapes she experiences in her dreams into the language of design, through the framework of indigenous Mexican worldviews. The project spreads awareness of the rich heritage and ongoing value of Mexican craftsmanship by using traditional artisanal techniques of brass- and glass-working, creating inimitable pieces infused with a uniquely Mexican soul and history.
