A student of space geometry, of atomic structures, of mathematics with complex numbers, ANTONIO CARRILLO (Madrid, 1940) is however better known for his work in architecture, for his singular façades in concrete or aluminum modules to Madrid buildings which he created during the seventies decade. But before that, in 1964, his ideas had already been materialized in industrial products such as the legendary LC2 lamp, made up of “composible” modules in a rhomboid shape, which subjected to a bending tension, produce geodesic structures. The LC2 was a commercial failure in the sixties and then fell into oblivion, but happily, today it is the source of inspiration for our QUISCO, COL and NUBE collections, which have become modern design classics in our time.
