Programmable Art by Francesca Fini
Riflessa Collection, 2022

 

Logos is a Programmable Art NFT from the Riflessa Collection by artist Francesca Fini. In this collection, the artist gives a renewed and alternative 3D digital existence, forever recorded on the blockchain, to the modernist Art Lamps conceived in the 70s by her father, the designer Gianfranco Fini, and produced in limited editions by the visionary Italian company New Lamp. 

A few survived super rare examples of these Designs have recently become collector's items in the vintage design markets and sold for tens of thousands of dollars at Christie's and other major auction houses.

Art Lamp by Gianfranco Fini

New Lamp, 1971

This Art Lamp was made of polymer semi-transparent parallelepipeds of various sizes, resting on a chromium-plated steel base measuring 30 x 30 cm. The base had a luminous inner side creating interesting optical effects. The piece is featured in Luce lampade 1968-1973: il nuovo design italiano, Fulvio Ferrari e Napoleone Ferrari, Allemandi Editore.

The NFT project

The NFT encloses two virtual conditions of the Art Lamp Logos in a single dynamic image. The reproduction in 3D is placed in a metaphysical context that changes day and night. Each of the two artworks contains a portion of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's famous motto: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me.
