Remains of the day
When archaeologists dug around on the top of Mounts Avril and Artxanda near the present site of Bilbao, they uncovered burial sites dating back some 6,000 years. But what will archaeologists in the future think when they dig up for example Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum by Frank Gehry? Will it be that people at the end of the 2nd Millennium must have enjoyed some pretty strong mushrooms?
We do know if future archaeologists ever dig around this Bilbao apartment project by Zaragoza-based architects A54 INSITU, they will draw one obvious conclusion: whoever lived here must have had ridiculously fabulous taste.
And that’s before they even uncover the LZF Domo wood lamp by Rqr Studio. Indeed when they find the Domo it will be hauled off to a 23rd century holographic museum to be displayed as a prime example of light becomes art.
Come to think of it, we like to believe our Domo lamp, along with the rest of the handmade veneer creations that hail from LZF, will be just as relevant in a thousand years as they are now (although we have no idea what energy source they will be using then).
But right now in the present day we can be sure that our Domo looks pretty damn good hanging in the Bilbao apartment dining room.
We proudly raise a glass to the future.
