Elsa Somano is a qualified architect. Looking for a closer contact with materials, from 2002 on she has moved to the making of lightning devices, till the setup of her own workshop in 2011. Relying on her former experience, Elsa makes lightning devices just like an architectural project: handling together volumes, shapes, design, and light. She is achieving very surprising and creative visual effect through drilling, brushing, lacquering aluminum, a material with a broad flexibility of use. Of course the creation of each sober and sleek design device is based on upstream client’s wishes and functional specifications. Elsa’s motto: Each new lightning device means a subtle balance between aesthetic pleasure and practical use.
