David Groppi's lamps appear simple, even bare at times, but their austerity hides complex processes and conceptualisation. I believe every lamp is like the hand of a magician. It provides the enchantment, but what fascinates us is not the hand; it’s the magic. David Groppi's work is one of synthesis, of reducing something to its essential. It’s the search for a simplicity that can give the maximum value to the magic of light, at times even hiding the hand. David Groppi's creations are meant to be generous. They enjoy lighting even more than they enjoy being seen. This is what makes them so special.
