Michele Malin was born in Rovigo in 1981. During the studies his interest goes to the design world, so in 2003 he gets a degree in “industrial design” at the Padua University. When he was just 24 years old he creates his menswear brand called “miniMALINsm. Fashion Wear For different people.”, establishing in the following years various partnerships with stylists and fashion ateliers. In 2015 Michele gets passionate about 3D printing and so, after having acquired the necessary tools and skills, decides to create his new brand “Michele Malin Design ”, specializing in design/industrial design with applications to 3D technology. With his collection “MIRROR LAMP Trilogy” participates in 2016 to MAISON & OBJET in Paris and in 2017 to Salone del Mobile; on this occasion he presented his last work “IMPRilight”.
Mirror Lamp distinctive features are a mirror plexiglass panel, a LED light source and 16 acrylic sections. These are arranged so as to reinterpret in a modern way the classic structure of the table lamp. The sections in acrylic converge inside the object, where STRIPS LED cleverly inserted, create the light source. The mirrored panel encloses and completes it all with an incredible illusion of depth, both in the structure of the lamp and in the LED light that pervades it. Complete the object a slit above the lamp structure that allows the prehensility and the insertion on the wall.
“IMPRilight” represent a footprint of light, a series of light beams which propagate at a point equidistant from their center, through a game of full and empty, a kind of magical “aura” that spreads over the entire surface, beams of positive lights that materialize from the core, cable, of material. Distinctive features of the lamp are a cut mirrored acrylic panel (CNC pantograph), a laser engraved acrylic base and a light source led. Thanks to this surface engraving, continuous light propagation is made possible by stripeleds located inside the panel.
Michele Malin will be present with his products at the exhibition “Light = Emotions”
