Eschewing the purely decorative, Petrobelli favours the functional in her work, believing that restraint in approach allows for a pure and sophisticated expression. As she has said of her work, "Glass is a beautiful material that lends itself to organic shapes and lots of colour. I try to restrain myself so the shape can be more interesting, more disciplined". The pieces in the 24 series follow a similarly architectural agenda as they cites Meccano - the modular construction system - as inspiration. Moulded geometric forms were rigorously conceived to stack one above each other. Just like the Meccano bricks, each layer of one stacked glass lamp - be it a floor based or ceiling pendant lamp - can be reordered and swapped to create innumerable different forms and colourways.
