The project is born from the will to take a musical instrument, with a millennial history which has its roots in the time of the Arabs, and the emptying of its use to give it another meaning. We started from the sinuous and feminine form of an acustic guitar, emptying it of the harmonic case but remarking the profile which becomes the basic structure of the lamp. The guitar loses its function as a sound emitter to obtain another, all new, as a sound emitter, in fact the sound hole (hole or rose), a fondamental element of the sound box, changes its function and is replaced by a light bulb. The wire and the buld holder are designed as a substitute for the guitar strings; the object is designed to be used as a ceiling lamp and as a wall applique. The profile/structure, made of plastics more or less resistant, is achieved through the use of 3D printers.
