‘Prisma’ Light is made of solid resin injected with a light pinch of powdered metal, generating a sculptural poetry through lit geometry. Transforming transparency and light into a journey through and constellations, Prisma portrays a fragment of time and space. The rays that penetrate the solid are diffused into a beautiful spectrum bouncing freely in various directions.

Hi, my name is Georges Mohasseb, Founder of Studio Manda. I am based in Beirut, but I consider myself to be a citizen of the world. I have decided to participate in the Cambi Auction House project because it corresponds to my philosophy of life that sharing is caring no matter how far apart we are. The Cambi initiative in collaboration with the
Ospedale Luigi Sacco is a message of hope, a united creative contribution and a positive input to support research. My participation is a tribute to the city of Milano, as it is the epicenter of design and social design thinking, as well as, a source of inspiration for better days to come.
