Everybody likes a warm, comfortable light. This is exactly what the new Cala lamp achieves by means of the combination of its light but resistant structure in oak wood, inspired by the classic artist’s easel, and its pearl-white polyester shade.
It is available in three sizes – 140cm, 165cm and 180cm. Next to a sofa or an armchair is the ideal place for the smallest version, whereas the other two models have been conceived as general lighting in more open spaces The Cala collection is also available in an outdoor version.
Varnished oak structure. White polyester shade, made of a PVC-PET laminated film. Methacrylate diffuser in lower part of the shade. In the smallest version, there is also a methacrylate diffuser in upper part of the shade.
