Intro

7 STARS, a brand-new project conceived by its creator, Italian design master Alessandro Mendini. 7 STARS is a small series of seven table and bedside decorative lamps named after the constellation Big Dipper. Alongside Campanello, a small table lamp designed by Alessandro Mendini in 2013, 7 STARS will include a total of seven lamps. Throughout 2022, other small lighting performances involving world-renowned designers and architects who worked side by side with Mendini will be revealed.
Made by Alessandro Mendini as an amulet protecting his grandchild’s space, RAMUN’s Campanello is the first piece of the 7 STARS collections reproducing the Big dipper in the night sky. It is famous for its light with healing music and can be used both as a night light or nursing light (breast-feeding lamp) and it is a unique ornament on the table, whose candlelight feature creates a romantic atmosphere. Furthermore, the soft and subdued light reflected off the uneven surface of the lamp body at different angles exudes a very fantastic aurora, lending the space an air of mystery and sophistication. The design with the shape of a human body reflects Mendini’s philosophy of design that objects should be able to interact with humans. The campanello contains soothing music arranged by a master of sound for Swiss music box. He arranged pieces of music by Bach, Chopin, Puccini, Pachelbel, Beethoven, to create healing tunes. When used as prenatal education music, these tunes provide the mother comfort and help develop the child's brain and emotional intelligence (EQ). The Campanello also offers the beautiful thousand-year-old sounds of Marinelli, an Italian bell foundry and a designated major supplier of bells to the Vatican.

Value

When you touch the head on Campanello, the small character we created, you are involved in a small performance that takes place right at your table. You find yourself facing a small, mysterious creature, and are immediately drawn into the fun of using it. It is a kind of toy for adults, with a head, eyes and a sprightly appearance. The gesture of touching the figurine and hearing its sound become a mini-spectacle that favors the enjoyment of the moment.
