falkland suspension lamp

Design Bruno Munari, 1964
Elastic fabric diffuser, aluminum structure
Made in Italy by Danese

The ?"Falkland" lamp has a tubular structure in aluminium covered with elastic material. It is a spontaneous shape, generated by the tension of the inner forces with which it is made. When Munari talks about ?"spontaneous" shape he refers to a part of his research done on natural organisms, in which materials and shapes seem to correspond to the functions they carry. This lamp corresponds more than the others to the requirements that Munari considers fundamental for a correct design: simplicity, efficiency, minimum storage bulk and maximum return. It is more than 63" tall but you can fit it in a few centimetres of space: the light filters through the tube, using the texture of the fabric to create a characteristic effect of soft and diffused luminosit

As part of the Futuristic movement of Milan, award-winning, Bruno Munari has had a strong influence in the direction of Italian design. His teachings and philosophies have been incorporated into design schools around the world as well as his designs showcased in museums all over the globe.
