Ferma Specchio basculante
Unlike boat building from scratch, the objects need to draw inspiration from a detail that nobody will see, but that is right there: it is the boat's DNA. Once this object is deduced its nature will also be understood. In my case, the underlying theme was a sort of flower that I took as an inspiration for the base of the wall lamps and that I then used as a matrix for conceiving other details. All this gives you a free hand on the type of concept and object that you are about to create, but always remembering what it is, not so much the boat as an object, but, rather, the boat in terms of DNA; in other words, the small piece I was talking about before which, in this case, may be the wall lamp's small arm section or its floreate base used for mirror base as well. This is how my attitude to the work I did should be understood, meaning that the new design work carried out on this boat is original. Original, I would say, from 1920, as if I took out a 'rib from the boat to create the new one'. This is certainly the difference between 'from scratch design' and what is the small margin, but in reality large enough, of design in refitting.
