Fulcro is a small carpentry shop in the Oltrarno area of Florence, where beautiful wood lamps are made with the most varied types of wood available in Florence and its surroundings.
Many of their objects are processed and treated to be left natural. This is to enhance the wood characteristics. Ancient techniques are also applied, such as hand carving, admixture, leaf gilding and shellac polishing.
Behind Fulcro, there are two men; Michelangelo who is the hands and mind of the wood creations and Fabio who is a supportive friend that takes care of the technology, graphic design and website.
Fulcro got its inspiration from the geometric Polyhedron. The Platonic solids owe their name to their discoverer, the Greek philosopher Plato. He was the first to study them and many other philosophers and mathematicians followed him. However, scientists are not the only ones to have turned their interest to these figures that seem to come directly from the very form of matter. In the course of history these forms have sometimes taken on religious and esoteric meanings. In antiquity they were called cosmic figures.
Fulcro can also accept commissioned projects and you can also choose the type of wood or the fixtures can be painted.
