Multidisciplinary design and interior architecture studio Form Us With Love reinvents the industrial lamp with the Unfold. Silicone rubber allows the lamp to be folded into a compact package.

Parentesi just celebrated its 50th anniversary last year. Achille Castiglioni saw a drawing by the deceased car designer Pio Manzù, known for the Fiat 127, and was inspired by its simplicity. A slotted, light emitting cylindrical tin resting on a rod connecting ceiling and floor. Castiglioni replaces the rod with a metal wire that, deflected by a tube, causes friction. The slight adjustment makes the lamp stay in position without the need for a screw.
Rodolfo Dordoni wanted to create dense braiding that would still let the air through. He was inspired by the braiding of the ropes used to moor boats. Hence the name Britta, which means ‘mooring’ in Italian.
