cappello is lit by LED, shaded by a paper “cap” or cappello in Italian and is set upon a cylinder of soft white Carrara marble. The cylinder piece actually comes out of the hole bored through the marble block-shaped base for Arco, the iconic floor lamp designed by the Castiglioni brothers and manufactured by Flos. molo’s first lamp designed with the marble core as a base is called love letter (now sold out) and utilizes a unique double-sided electroluminescent film as its lighting source. Both lamps are a tribute to the designers we admire.


molo, based in Vancouver, Canada, is a collaborative design and production studio led by Stephanie Forsythe (B.EDS, M.ARCH) and Todd MacAllen (B.FA, B.EDS, M.ARCH).
