Our Achille Castiglioni-inspired Parentesi Lamp bears all of the hallmarks of the original designer's trademark style,from the shaped carbon steel frame to the dramatic exposed bulb. It stands 350cm from tip to base and fits effortlessly into any lounge,dining room or office environment,adding a healthy dose of flamboyant Italian style. Available in either black or white finishes,allowing it to slip effortlessly into any colour scheme,it remains one of Castiglioni's most enduring designs.
Part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York,the Parentesi lamp has been a mainstay of Mid-century Modern homes since the early 70s,bringing all of the style and panache of the Splugen Brau to a floor lamp. The customisable elements of the Parentesi,including a fully-rotatable bulb head and a dimmer switch,mean that you can set any mood you wish in every possible setting.
Achille 1918-2002 (Italy) - Pier Giacomo 1913-1968 (Italy)
Since 1940, Archille had dedicated himself to experimenting on industrial products with his brothers Livio (1911-1979) and Pier Giacomo. They focused on Urban Planning, Architecture and Design and worked towards developing a process of integral design. This meant considering how each component within the process would work in conjunction with one another, from the materials through to production.
"There has to be irony, both in design and in the objects. I see around me a professional disease of taking everything too seriously. One of my secrets is to joke all the time"
