Salone del Mobile 2010, Milan – Infinitycandle

Every year the “Fuorisalone” -the event related to Milan’s Salone del Mobile– gives a great chance to take good pictures, by portraying creative objects of unconventional design, color and shapes. Artworks are already fine by themselves …so half of the photograper work is automatically done 🙂

Here’s the first of a series of articles about Fuorisalone …from a photographic point of view, of course.

The flame of a single candle infinitely mirrorred between two semi-reflecting mirrors: Infinitycandle.

The candle stands on a support between two circular semi-reflecting glasses, that bounce flame image in an infinite pattern, changing as you slightly change your point of view.

Salone del Mobile 2010, Milan – Puzzled table

Every year the “Fuorisalone” -the event related to Milan’s Salone del Mobile– gives a great chance to take good pictures, by portraying creative objects of unconventional design, color and shapes. Artworks are already fine by themselves …so half of the photograper work is automatically done 🙂
Here’s another article about Fuorisalone …from a photographic point of view, of course.

Puzzled table, design by Emma Klinkenberg - Picture taken at "Tuttobene", Fuorisalone Zona Tortona 2010.

Table top is formed by fifteen slide puzzle pieces. These pieces can slide until the lines of the wood fit exactly together (table top comes from a single wood piece, effect is very nice to be seen). Underneath each piece, there is space to store objects: a tidy table above, all objects below.

Also the stool works on the same principle, but…

…what’s the right color?

Main problem to face during Fuorisalone -for a photographer, of course…- is probably color balance. Continua a leggere
