The Egg of Columbus table lamp was designed by Valentina Carretta and Fabrica. Carreta graduated from the Politecnico di Milano in 2006. She started working with Fabrica (the Benetton Group's communication research centre) in 2005, as a designer and project manager. Carreta also operates as a freelance designer, with an emphasis on product form, displays, and art orientation.
The inspiration behind Carretta’s designs includes a combination with empathy, recollection, and discovering new languages with regards to conventional materials. The designer aims to tell a story, or include a unique meaning and element of shock in each of her creations.
Fabrica, on the other hand, as mentioned previously is a communication research centre. It is found Italy and forms part of the Benetton Group. The brand provides youth, worldwide, the opportunity to take part in a one-year scholarship. Fabrica offers a variety of disciplines ranging from design and visual communication to video and journalism.
