Inspirations and citations from Scandinavian design, from the modernist idea of the 1950s, from the work of the great masters of design and from Achille Castiglioni for whom, at the beginning of her career, she worked as assistant.
The pendant is the bigger of the two sizes. Use alone, or in combination with other lamps in the collection to create a striking visual statement. With its beautiful, solid brass components, woven fabric cable and chic, high gloss colour palette, this premium five-piece collection is a sophisticated reinterpretation of our classic Original 1227™ design. A perfect blend of form and function, the Pendant and Maxi Pendant make a striking feature, while the Wall Light, Wall Mounted and Desk Lamps can be re-positioned with the slightest touch and come with adjustable shades that focus the light precisely where it’s needed.
