ARCO
ACHILLE CASTIGLIONI
1962

The Castiglioni brothers drew their inspiration for the Arco lamp from something they saw every day: a streetlight. Using commercially available parts, they set out to design a piece that was technically innovative and visually appealing—a lamp that was functional but wouldn’t need to be stepped around.

TAB F
E BARBER & J OSGERBY
2011

E. Barber and J. Ogersby keep one goal in mind when they begin a creation: Challenge everything. “When we are commissioned to design a product, we seek to re-evaluate the archetype, to challenge precedents. We always look at different ways in which products can be manufactured, not necessarily by using new materials or radical re-thinking, but maybe by using existing techniques in a more original or intelligent way.”

STRING LIGHTS ROUND
MICHAEL ANASTASSIADES
2014

“I love the way they divide the landscape and how spheres are occasionally beaded through the wires at random intervals. I also love how, in Mediterranean cultures, strings of lights are stretched between posts to mark an outdoor space for an evening party in a village square. And finally, I love how human ingenuity works around problems created by everyday things in the house (like switches and power points) that others have chosen to position where we don’t want them."

RODOLFO DORDONI

SMITHFIELD C
JASPER MORRISON
2009

The Smithfield family was named for the Smithfield Market in London, where the artist was inspired by the industrial nature of the fixtures he saw. “I’ve always liked the industrial and functional character of these lights,” he says. “I wanted to make a project out of them, looking for some way of making use of their efficiency in delivering light, and the forms themselves which are so much a part of the good atmosphere of industrial spaces.”

CAPTAIN FLINT
MICHAEL ANASTASSIADES
2015

There’s a duality to this finely balanced piece from artist Michael Anastassiades. “I wanted to design a light that was dual purpose,” he says. “It is an up lighter, illuminating the space with ambient lighting, and its rotation also offers a dim companion for reading. There’s a notion of balance, with a cone resting delicately on its point on a rotating rod.”

PIERO LISSONI
2001

ARRANGEMENTS
MICHAEL ANASTASSIADES
2017

I’m challenged in how the delicate nature of something small can be translated spatially and still manages to retain its preciousness in the way materials are presented. It is no coincidence that the word “pendant” has a double meaning. Existing both as a piece of jewelry that hangs from a chain worn around the neck, and a light designed to hang from the ceiling.

SEBASTIAN WRONG

PARENTESI
ACHILLE CASTIGLIONI & PIO MANZU
1971

"Pio Manzù had the original idea for Parentiesi,” explains Achille Castiglioni. “He thought up a fixed vertical boom and a cylindrical box with a slot for the light, which went up and down: you stopped it with a screw. He replaced the boom with a metal cord that, when bent, creates friction and enables the lamp to be in position without requiring any screws."

IC LIGHTS BLACK T
MICHAEL ANASTASSIADES
2018

Poise is powerful: That’s the message Michael Anastassiades offers with his IC Light Series. From the skillful balance of the sphere and baton that invokes thoughts of a dexterous juggler’s act to the lamp’s name—IC, a reference to the identity code used to evaluate immigrants entering the UK—the designer makes a commanding statement.

GATTO
ACHILLE CASTIGLIONI
1960

RODOLFO DORDONI
