Garbo “Q” looks like a light sparkling cascade, a wall of wires, transparent, a translucent mirror moving with a breath of air, thus creating a bright sparkle, a magic presence in a room space. The plafonnier may be used to divide rooms or just to emphasize something exhibited.
It’s a square-shaped ceiling element. A white fabric fringe is applied to the support. Easily removable, washable, heat-resistant and fire-proof. Heights are the following: 300 cm from the ceiling to the ground and 160 cm from table height. It’s possible to cut off part of the the fringe in order to reduce the height. Applied both individually or side by side, with their free random location, they live freely in space. They are bright diaphragms which separate an area without limiting it, you cross them and, in front of a window, they look like floating against the light. The title “Garbo” was suggested by Dino Gavina as a tribute to the actress Greta Garbo, evidencing its unique beauty and elegance.
Garbo has been included in Tokyo National Museum of Modern Art permanent collection.
