Parentesi 50th Anniversary


To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Parentesi by Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzù, discover two new editions in Turquoise and Orange Signal.

The story of Parentesi is special - it draws from ingenuity, a pinch of magic, and a lot of respect. Originally a pencil sketch by two great designers who worked together but never met.

Parentesi 50

An adjustable lamp which provides direct light. Parentesi moves vertically via a sliding painted-shaped steel tube attached to the ceiling.

A counterweight in cast iron is made in the same color as the lamp body. Includes a dimmer on the cable, which allows the regulation of light brightness.

Available in a special signal orange and turquoise finish.

Note: Parentesi 50 will not be available to ship until January 15th, 2022.

A Flos bestseller and a 1979 Compasso d'Oro winner, now available in the colors the designers loved.
