‘shouts and songs, lights and clamour, in a kaleidoscope of colours,” goes the italian song of the same name. translating ino ‘fun fair’, the tune evokes a fantastic world of bizarre and exuberant games which alternate with curious and lively stands packed with colourful sweets – scenes of lights, scents and colours; carousels, sounds and flavours; all evocative of a village festival. this is what alessandro zambelli recreated through ‘lunapark’, a limited-edition coffee table designed for rome-based gallery secondome.

part of unplugged – a collection of hand-made furniture pieces – alessandro zambelli‘s lunapark table for secondome  is made from precious murano glass. craft wise, the designers adopted a special technique whereby plates of glass are melted and shaped. the result is ‘an irresistible pop triumph, featuring fluid lines permeated by strikingly bright colors,’ describes zambelli. thanks to its special production technique, lunapark’s glass flows into curves which define the table’s shape and, like poured sugar, contains tiny air bubbles which make the surface unexpectedly soft and velvety. at the same time, like a fluid material, it softly yields to the required form, bending to define the structural supporting elements of the table.

in terms of its colors, lunapark is a fully customizable piece of furniture. it is possible to choose from an extensive palette featuring neutral or subtle shades as well as lively, exuberant tones – light amethyst or dark grey, violet and topaz, yellow and mint green, aquamarine and cobalt blue, to list just a few of the available shades – in an infinite kaleidoscope of tones. with that, it becomes ‘totally faithful to the image evoked by its name’.
