The unpredictability of things, the lightness of intuition, the dream, the ability to create and the emotion in being amazed, provoking a smile, a curiosity. Each time a different alchemy accompanies Karman in inventing new light sculptures.

Each time a different story becomes the theme of a new project. Light is a continuous source of inspiration, an impalpable element that allows you to decorate environments, to look at them from a different perspective.
