Ettore Sottsass designed the Mobili Grigi series of full bedroom and living room furnishings for Poltronova, which debuted at the third edition of Eurodomus in 1970.
The Ultrafragola mirror/lamp is a part of this collection, with a sinuous profile that evokes long, wavy hair. All of the models were scrapped after the prototype stage except for Ultrafragola.
Is it not the case that tombs always have a trembling light to illuminate the blue of the souls walking in the valley of dust, as evidenced by the lights emanating from "The grey furniture"? Don't submarines have a green light that quivers while they're submerged?
Whatever the case may be, the lights are meant to emanate from the fiberglass bodies, much like the ever-glowing white skin of a breast or the ever-glowing red head of a penis in pornographic nights; by this, I mean the lights of the Japanese glow worm, which transform the darkness of the night into tangible substance.
