THE STORY BEHIND THE CASTIGLIONI LAMPADINA LAMP
The Castiglioni brothers' work is as unmistakable today as it was in their 1960s-70s heyday,defined by its dramatic flamboyance and playful simplicity,and the Lampadina Table Lamp is certainly no exception. On first glance simply a massive oversized light bulb set in a stand,the intention of Achille Castigilioni's original design was to bring the fun and innocence of childhood back to the home,making furniture and lighting that made you feel child-sized again. The result was a bold,eye-catching design that still can't help but raise a smile.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
A.AND P. CASTIGLIONI
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."
