The imposing GT7 ribbon shade lamp appears to be similar to the GT5, although it is larger in size, meaning it needed to be strengthened and had to incorporate an upper metal disc (near to the three light sources) as well as the lower light diffusing disc.
Ever since the early 1990s, Santa & Cole has championed the use of ribbon shades to embellish all manner of light sources, exploring textiles and experimenting with colours and tones (they even enlisted the help of Raw Color studio). The GT5 was the first in the collection arising as an alternative to the use of continuous textile, methacrylate and cardboard shades. It was followed by the GT6 and, later on, the larger GT7, GT1000 and GT1500, designed for use in public venues owing to their large dimensions. This is a colourful family that is able to change its scale without losing its essence.

Formed by the individuals who are co-workers in Santa & Cole’s editing department, and led by the editors, the Santa & Cole team is responsible for the design of the company’s own products. Shining examples of this include the Trípode G5 lamp (1997), the HeadLed (2013) system, the Arne streetlamp (2013) along with the indoor model the Arne Domus (2015), the Sisisí System (1994) and the Básica lamp (1984), among others.
