Turning on a table lamp is a simple everyday gesture. It means creating a cone of light on a book or a magazine, or on a portable computer for work. It helps us to focus on an object or a function, excluding the rest of the space, which remains in shadow. A personal corner of light.
Ettorino is the new family of products by Catellani & Smith that includes the T table (in the photo) and Clamp. Also available in classic white and black finishes, the Ettorino lamps play with the elegant interplay of primary colors, mixing blue, yellow and red. They are designed as desk lamps, to offer proper lighting for worksurfaces, thanks to the possibility of movement and rotation. The light can be positioned at variable distances from the desktop, and thanks to the rotating head it can also be aimed at the wall.
Look at Me is a family of lamps by Artemide that now includes a new table version. Essential elements, perfectly developed to ensure maximum efficiency and comfort thanks to two lenses placed at the ends of the diffusor. The light emitted by the LED source is perfectly controlled: the beam formed by the primary lens is cast onto the surface of the lower lens, to open the emission. The light is therefore not spread into the space through the black cone, but shaped with precision to intercept the stepped profile and to enliven the dark volume with lines of light.
The G.O. lamp is the reissue of a model designed by Oluce by Giuseppe Ostuni in the 1960s. The vertical stem meets a horizontal branch on which the shade is mounted. The arm, thanks to its joint system, becomes a sliding part, ready for repositioning and adjustment. The reissue is enhanced by refined details in brushed gold that stand out in contrast with the black nickel and the colors of the base and the shade, available in three different hues: black, scarlet and anodic bronze.
Africa, designed for Vibia by Francisco Gomez Paz, has a slender conical stem that terminates in a head with clean lines. The portable lamp is a reaction to new lifestyles, based on free hybrids of residential spaces and workspaces.
Composed of a few simple parts, Diatomea is the table lamp designed by SALIENTI (Matteo Messinese & Walter Toccaceli) for Martinelli Luce. Essential, for flexible use, it is easy to expand in terms of composition. Two single external legs and a central double leg support two horizontal segments that contain two LED strips, permitting perfect 360° adjustment to aim the light in a concentrated or linear arrangement.
Magneto is a lamp by Giulio Iacchetti for Foscarini, whose fulcrum is a spherical magnet that joins two simple elements, a support post with a circular base and a compact LED light source, similar to an electric torch or a microphone, with extreme versatility of angle and movement along the post. Magneto comes in two sizes, for the table or the floor, and in two colors, white and black, to add character to different spaces and moments: from the office to the lounge, the living area to the bedroom.
The Anna table lamp – a very simple conical shade with a single steel rod that acts as a base and a wiring channel – has been created by Paolo Tilche for De Padova. The essential lines spread direct or indirect lighting, on surfaces or to frame walls, brightening the room and everything it contains.
Slamp celebrates the 10th anniversary of one of its most iconic collections, Clizia by Adriano Rachele, presenting it in a new gold version: Clizia Mama non Mama Gold.
