POY collection: POY is the name of the brand of home product launched by Gianluca Managò. The first collection launched in October 2021 consists of three products involving lighting, ceramic and textile. POY lamp is entirely 3D-printed with a plant-based plastic and finished with a brushed texture.
This table light gently blends Scandinavian aesthetic values and a squishy style resulting in an organic and graceful object. It emits a soft and warm gradient light that makes the lamp becomes one with every interior. POY cushion embodies the aesthetic of the whole POY collection: scandic pop, clarity of Scandinavian values with the panache of squishy style.
Its shape is inspired by the work of Matisse and its cut-outs. The cushion enhances the aesthetic of every seat that hosts it, intensifying their colours and dynamism. As the whole collection, the vase blends the clarity of Scandinavian design with a touch of pop resulting in a curvy and exuberant piece that donates panache to its environment. The collection refl ects Gianluca’s design journey through Europe and his style exploring cultures and his undeniable design values.
