"In many cultures, a branch of a<br />

tree is loaded with symbolic values<br />

related to nature and spirituality.<br />

The idea of transforming a branch<br />

into a light source arises from<br />

the desire to amplify this positive<br />

value and create a functional<br />

object that can also serve as a<br />

stimulus for the soul."<br />

Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba was born in Massa Lombarda in<br />

1976. He att<strong>en</strong>ded the Institute of Art and the Academy of Fine<br />

Arts. After graduating, he began working in the theatre sc<strong>en</strong>e and<br />

collaborating with architects. He soon began to create unique design<br />

pieces alongside his artistic production, but gradually the two careers<br />

began to merge. As a result, his design became <strong>en</strong>riched with artistic<br />

concepts.<br />

For more than 10 years he has be<strong>en</strong> working on private and public<br />

projects, and the relationship betwe<strong>en</strong> man and nature is his<br />

favourite subject; he interprets both the dynamics and the beauty of<br />

nature, showing how man's attitude alters the original.<br />

He likes to think of his work as a direct continuation of what he did as<br />

a child, playing with everything he found and creating what his mind<br />

imagined. In reality, wh<strong>en</strong> he explores the aesthetic and the concept,<br />

he takes the ideas from the same sources that he created while<br />

playing and dreaming with everything that normally surrounds him.<br />

He learned from art how an idea can be elegant, so he is always<br />

looking for pure concepts and synthesis.<br />

The infinity symbol and the number 8 have a<br />

common relationship that goes beyond their<br />

simple graphical repres<strong>en</strong>tation. 8 repres<strong>en</strong>ts<br />

complet<strong>en</strong>ess while infinity repres<strong>en</strong>ts eternity<br />

and the vastness of the universe. For this reason,<br />

they are oft<strong>en</strong> used as symbols of good wishes<br />

and auspiciousness, 8 for its perfection and<br />

infinity for its lasting nature.<br />

8 is also the number of lamps signed by the artist<br />

and collected in the <strong>Aira</strong> Limited Edition, an<br />

exclusive collection that serves as a prelude to<br />

the serial production of <strong>Aira</strong> in both floor and<br />

susp<strong>en</strong>sion versions.<br />
