“I go with my lantern and my lantern goes with me” (German St. Martin’s Day children’s song). The Pirellina isn’t portable, but it mustn’t. Since the lamp looks much more beautiful in living rooms. And thereby it spreads a comparably pleasant light, like the one of lanterns on St. Martin’s Day.
The Pirellina table lamp was designed by Gio Ponti for FontanaArte in 1967. Its unmistakable shape ensures a pleasant, diffuse light, which nearly acts nostalgic because of the appearance of Pirellina by FontanaArte itself.
The ring at the top makes it easy to change the lamp’s place, if its light is desired at another place. Since the light beam of the table lamp by FontanaArte is glare-free and dimmable, Pirellina serves for different purposes: it can be a reading lamp or an accent lamp.
The FontanaArte Pirellina has an integrated dimmer and a frame out of nickel-plated brass glass. The opposite lying diffusors are made of bent, pressed glass.
