  Like an allegory of the Renaissance, Parchment Flower is born from Leonardo da Vinci's Flower of Life and spreads its delicate petals in the light of knowledge.


With its intricate four levels parchment rosette, Parchment Flower is an allegorical luminaire that represents the embodiment of the geometric figure of the "Flower of Life", found in particular in the Leonardo da Vinci’work. The parchment rosette is inspired from an anonymous Neapolitan renaissance harpsichord rosette. Mounted on a wooden rod which pierces the motif of the flower of life represented on the circular wooden base.
