bourgie table lamp

Design Ferruccio Laviani, 2004
Polycarbonate, metallic ABS
Made in Italy by Kartell

A reminiscence of the 70's with his Easy and Fl/Icon lamps which featured playfulness, joy and color. After Take, with its young, informal and amusing design, we introduce the Bourgie lamp, of classic inspiration, the revisiting of a classic: the baroque lamp. The revolutionary invention of this lamp is it is made entirely in transparent polycarbonate. On one hand, it is classical, rich, traditional and on the other, it is innovation, transparency, irony. The quality of the material and the extremely high-quality processing makes it look like a precious, crystal lamp. The baroque style base is constituted of three decorated layers that cross over each other, and the large hood is made with a plisse effect, to create a play on reflections when lit.

Thanks to a special coupling system on the hood, it can be assembled at three different heights. You can use it as a side table in the drawing room, or place it on the bedside table for evocative bedroom lighting; as a sculptural object it can be placed directly on the floor, or used as a reading lamp on a desk. Light intensity is adjustable through a high quality switch dimmer. The chrome and gold finish versions are produced in a limited edition.

F. Laviani

Ferruccio Laviani (b. 1960) of Cremona, Italy graduated from Politecnico di Milano in architecture in 1986 and created industrial design objects, mainly lamps or lighting systems known for colored transparent plastics. From 1986-1991, he was a member of the De Lucchi studio, designing for various companies such as Credito Bergamasco, Mandarina Duck, Memphis, Olivetti, and Swatch. He came into prominence as the Memphis group began to leave its mark on International design. In 1991, he showed his silverware from the Morandotti collection at the "European Capitals of New Design” exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The same year, he began a collaboration with Kartell and is now an artistic director and consultant.
Kartell's image and its 59 years of history are described through the company's products. The development, the corporate strategies, the attention the company has paid to technology, the project and the design can be appreciated by observing the products Kartell has produced. Kartell's products express the language and the atmosphere of the period in which they were created, but at the same time, they are "contemporary articles," they incorporate many other values and messages and this is why they have become an integral part of our domestic design world.
