viscontea pendant lamp

by Castiglioni, from Flos

viscontea pendant lamp

Design Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, 1960
White powder coated internal steel structure, sprayed resin
Made in Italy by Flos

An impressive and 'out of this world' design, Viscontea provides a warm glow and stylish appeal to any environment. The Viscontea cocoon lamp features a white, powder-coated metal frame which is then sprayed with a unique 'cocoon' resin to create the diffuser. It is then protected by a transparent finish. This technique and use of material was first popularized by George Nelson and his 'Bubble' lamps.

Achille Castiglioni's imaginative forms and simplistic designs have made him one of the most influential figures in Italian design.

Castiglioni

Achille Castiglioni (1918 - 2002) was a renowned Italian industrial designer often inspired by everyday things. He made use of ordinary materials, preferring to use minimal materials to create a maximal effect. Born in Milan, Castiglioni studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano University and set up a design office in 1944 with his brothers, Livio Castiglioni and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. The brothers held the viewpoint that design must restructure an object's function, form, and production process. “Start from scratch. Stick to common sense. Know your goals and means,” Castiglioni said. He was best known for his lamps, including Flos, Luminator, Bulb, Arco, and the Snoopy Lamp, inspired by the comics character.
The furniture manufacturers Dino Gavina and Cesare Cassina founded Flos, a leading Italian lighting manufacturer. Flos established a reputation through innovative lighting designs from Achille Castiglioni. The collaboration with Achille Castiglioni introduced the "family of products" concept to the market with the Brera series. Flos continues to develop emerging talent and award winning lighting designs.
