“The idea behind the design of Float was to make the object invisible and the light visible. Ernesto Gismondi (the founder of Artemide) came to see the paperboard model we had made in the studio. He liked it a lot and immediatly decided to put it into production: a good example of the clear thinking of Italian industrialists!”. JI
