Parentesi is Italian for “brackets“ or “to clamp“ and describe besides the name the way how the lamp functions. A steel cable which is “clamped” between ceiling and floor facilitates the regulation of the height of a steel tube where the lamp is fixed. This convenient layout of the light by Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzù was already made in 1970 but is still more than up-to-date. The innovative mixture of floor lamp and pendant lamp was rewarded with the "Compasso d´Oro" in 1979.

Technical Data:
This lamp provides direct light. The lamp moves vertically via sliding of a painted or nickel-plated shaped steel tube on a ceiling-to-floor steel cable (400cm long). The fixture head is made of injection-moulded black elastomer (UL-94 HB) and houses a switch. The length of the power cord from the lamp holder is 400 cm.

By extra charge, Parentesi is also available with a dimmer.

We use these Parentesi light fittings as our functional lighting in both our bedroom (3x3m) and our Living Room (3x4.4m) of our apartment. They provide ample light, are very versatile and make the lighting part of the design solution at the same time.
