The Pedrera lamp originated in the middle of the 1950s. At that time it was innovative in its expression and material, and today it is a classic. The through thought and sophisticated design didn’t lose its charm along the years.
The Pedrera floor lamp PD2 suits wonderful in the modern home and offers a smooth and pleasant atmosphere to the furnishing despite its dimensions. The floor lamp PD2 suits perfectly besides a sofa, in empty corners or simply free in a room. There it doesn’t stand in the foreground, but discretely looking like a sculpture with the distinctive expression. When the light is turned on the inner screen spreads a soft and pleasant shine forming a fascinating sample with the outer screen.
The Spanish architect Barba Corsini designed the lamp in the year 1953. He was asked to design attic apartments in Gaudis famous living building “La Pedrera” in Barcelona by the real estate company that leads the building.
For the Pedrera building, Barca Corini consequently designed thirteen individual apartments that conserved the numbers 1 to 14 because of superstition reasons. Moreover he designed a lamp and furniture series that also contain the Pedrera lamps for these flats.
The inspiration for the lamp series from Barba Corsini came from the slim, cylindrical chimneys from the Pedrera building. The Pedrera table lamp that is manufactured by the Danish company Gubi today received his name thanks to its origin.
