Victor Vaisilev proposes the Superluna, his debut with Oluce, a lamp project that was inspired by a personal reflection on Vico Magistretti’s work, with his ability to develop iconic shapes to enhance the potential of the light source. The slender metal rod of the Superluna lamp conceals the electrical components and it hosts the light source: the LED opens out onto the stem in line with the semi-spherical shade that reflects its light by rotating on its own axis. In this way, the echo of the perpetual movement of celestial bodies is enhanced by the small luminous core contained in the structure of the lamp itself.

Victor Vasilev was born in 1974 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. At the age of 15 his family emigrated to Israel. In 1996 he moved to Milan to study architecture at the Politecnico. Before graduating, he spent a year as an exchange student at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. During his stay in Denmark, he was deeply influenced by the achievements of the nordic architects both in architecture and in product design. After ending his studies, he decided to stay in Milan and in 2004 started his own practice. In 2010 he won the first prize in the Dressed Stone design competition promoted by Antonio Lupi and Marmotech Carrara. This event marked the beginning of his collaboration with Antonio Lupi. The design proposals are inspired by solutions developed for the domestic environment, which represent a major part of the studio’s commissions.
