The Origo White Pendant by David Pompa
Fiorito is a light gray-colored natural stone which encloses small fossil remains, giving it a white tone relief.
Its beige tone makes it very easy for use in neutral contemporary projects. Fiorito is handcrafted in Mexico City, were its cylindrical form is shaped.
The precise procedure enhances its physical characteristics, giving it its form through manual precise techniques.
An exploration of an interaction, light shining onto the texture of the natural stone, David Pompa’s Origo reveals its relief and contour.
Origo embodies opposite essences mirroring Fiorito stone and an opal glass diffuser.
David Pompa: “Sober and logical, both materials create a relationship between light and composition. Spheres work as a double geometry, mirroring positive and negative.”
Studio David Pompa: “the Origo white pendant reinforces the fundamental relationship between light and shadows.”
