Time has passed since its 1933 cinema debut: (King) Kong, the ferocious beast became a good hero when the feelings began to resurface, and, reluctantly abandoned the jungle, the city now seems to have become home, whether New York or any other city. Giovannoni's Kong is, surprisingly, technological and almost human. It shines in front of itself just as if the power went out. It's out of scale to be a toy, out of scale to be a lamp, but it is also out of scale to be a gorilla. Kong becomes a powerful object, with an adjustable arm to direct the light beam at different angles, infinitely adjustable and with countless uses. Above all, it's no longer scary thanks to the designer's imagination and creativity.
