New Mint on Async Art
The project Riflessa has been minted on the NFT platform Async Art.
Riflessa is the genesis programmable Art NFT by Italian artist Francesca Fini.
In this works she recreates and re-prototypes in 3D the Art lamps conceived in the 70s by her father designer, and produced in limited edition by the visionary Italian company New Lamp. A few very rare examples of these Art lamps / light sculptures, now out of production, have recently become collector's items in the modernism market, and sold for tens of thousands of dollars at Christie's and other major auction houses. This project, animated by the artist’s desire to celebrate the genius of her father, digitally brings back to life a lost piece of Italian design from one of the most innovative and brilliant periods in recent history.

New Lamp, 1970
A luminous panel in stainless steel with white lacquered metal. The steel cubes are magnetic and can be interactively re-arranged to create infinite light patterns. This was originally a very large wall lamp, measuring 81 x 81 x 10 cm. The piece is featured in Luce lampade 1968-1973: il nuovo design italiano, Fulvio Ferrari e Napoleone Ferrari, Allemandi Editore.
The NFT created by Francesca Fini intends to recreate some of the infinite possible interactive configurations that the original physical lamp allowed its audience. For this reason, 24 different renderings were created, unified into a single digital work of programmable Art that changes over the course of 24 hours. This was possible thanks to the minting of the NFT on Async Art, a cryptoart platform specialized in dynamic works of programmable Art.
