At Cerno they believe that the often overlooked objects that we surround ourselves with in our daily lives represent an opportunity for expression and personal enjoyment. In a consumer age where nearly everything is viewed as disposable, Cerno aims to be accountable to their customers and our environment, by building products to last, selecting their material pallet responsibly and using energy efficient LED technology.
The way the walnut planes in the Muto both block and bounce light make for a very dynamic composition of light and shadow, from any vantage point. While the pinwheel form with its repeating elements is symmetric, it appears very sculptural from any one view. The modern floating ideal is realized in the Muto. By holding each walnut element away from its neighbor, so each plane floats, the whole fixture feels light as if it were floating itself.
