Why do we love Bruno Munari when Bruno Munari equals nothing? Take the Capri suspension lamp: three fibreglass sheets; three aluminium rods; 6 rings; two washers; a socket; an electric cable. By and large not a lot. Even when the lamp is placed on a table it still amounts to nothing. It come into existence when it is hanging; this nothing becomes apparent when it is switched on. We love Bruno Munari for this nothing that becomes essential, continuously reminding us of the simplicity of things at times. Several bits of string, paper and we’re off. With Bruno Munari, nothing turns into something, ultimately the very essence of the creative act.
