Krill and The Flintstones
PAST HAS NEVER BEEN SO MODERN
The Flintstones is an animated sitcom produced by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera for ABC. Originally broadcast from 1960 to 1966 and set in the fictional stone-age town of Bedrock, the series revolves around the daily life of the titular family and their neighbors, the “Rubbles”.
Like the Flintstones, which represented a very archaic past in an almost futuristic way, Krill lamps embody a futuristic tradition.
The name itself of the collection, “Neo Veteres”, is a poignant oxymoron meaning “the new old”, referring to the classic aesthetics that incorporates a new functionality and vice versa.
Amongst Krill lamps, the one with the most regular design is Neo Tibur, taking its name from the ancient city of Tibur (today’s Tivoli), an ancient travertine quarry.
The harmonization between the modular shape and the organic material allows a beautiful suffuse and refracted light be generated.
