Achille Castiglioni - Flos - Lamp - Parentesi
Italy - 1970-1979 - Aluminium

On offer is a black "Flos Parentesi" lamp designed by Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzu in 1971.

It needs only little floorspace due to the fact that it is supended between the floor by use of a black metal ceiling mount and a rubber floorweight.

The shape of the black metal frame enables easy adjustment of the heigth of the max 150W E27 lightsource that runs on 230V. The fitting that holds the lightsource can be rotated fully. This makes the design of this lamp so versatile; it can serve as an up- or downlighter and as direct- or indirect light. The electric wire has a total length of 385cm and the (easily replaceable) steelwire length including finetuning adjuster totals 230cm.

Lamp is in used but good condition. The enclosed pictures form integral part of this description (lightsource included!).

Item can be picked up or can be shipped as a registered package.
