The “HOT IRON” project, born from the cooperation between creative designer Daniela Boni and photographer Elisa Perotti or LabLoft sign, aims at conveying a sense of “balance” with photographic images inspiring beauty. The contrast of hardness and lightness harmoniously coexists within the chosen materials. The lines intersect, collide and meet only to be released in the boundary between light and form. The three core elements of the photographic medium – body, light and shape – are expressed with sharp lines and create the meaning and beauty of Daniela’s and Elisa’s vision. The nude is nothing more than a silent support. Though still physical, it allows the viewer an experience of the contrasting physicality. All the while, he/she remains a quiet witness of the scene represented. The meeting between the two feminine artists has allowed them to express a perfect teamwork through images. They are creating consistency and harmony between the chosen elements. It becomes a flowing exchange between subject, object and observer, where in the end, as Daniela says “the circle closes”. The creations were made thanks to the willingness and ability of female friends to get involved and share the project.

has been working with iron as a medium for over 15 years.
Her research has led her to the unique ability to express the lightness of this metal, developing harmonious shapes, which at the same time remain imposing in both their structure and meaning.
The “circle” is often present in Daniela’s work.
