I have dreamed of these lights.
I have seen them. I have quite a good collection of them in both of our UNICI locations for you to see as well.
Although to be honest, you don’t really see these lights, you sort of experience them. Like a dream.
Catellani & Smith was started just over 20 years ago.
The principle vision of designer Enzo Catellani is summed up by reporting that his lamps are the result
of “the identification and enhancement of a poetic, not the mere exploitation of a resource”
This statement is especially illustrated with the company’s forward use of LED technologies –
of course, this is a positive trend in lighting design, but no one is treating the medium quite like Catellani & Smith
Using refraction, irregular surfaces and reflections, these lamps become the soul of a space.
Yes, they are dramatic and yes, they are transformative, but they are like nothing else in the lighting design world.
And the lights are bright – one might assume that such avant-garde design would be simply the ambient art of a room,
and it is that, but through unfettered research & development, Catellani & Smith ensures that these works of art are very functional.
Museums and galleries all over the world are using Catellani & Smith to illuminate exhibitions and installations.
Catellani & Smith’s lamps are the embodiment of a technological principle and an ecstatic vision.
I invite you to please, visit UNICI & UNICI CASA and “witness” them for yourself.
