THE ELEPHANT LAMP
Designer Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba was born in 1976 in Massalombarda, Italy. He attended the Art Institute and the Academy of Fine Arts. Straight out of school, he began working in theater production design and collaborated with architects on numerous projects. He loves thinking about his work as a direct continuation of what he used to do when he was a child, playing with everything he finds and creating what his spirit imagined. He is indeed devoted to looking for the aesthetic components and concepts as they are an outgrowth of the same sources that he created while playing, daydreaming with everything surrounding him.
COPENHAGEN PENDANT BY SPACE COPENHAGEN
The Copenhagen Pendant produced by &tradition 2014 is a collection of lights, combining the classic and the modern, the maritime and the industrial. Comes in three sizes SC6, SC7 & SC8.
Striking, block coloured lighting, Bouché is delicately shaped into a bottle form and topped with a natural corkwood light fitting. Inside the vessel, a coiled neon bulb finishes the lamp providing soft, diffused light that invokes a warm, intimate atmosphere.
The Mouse Lamp series is a new collaboration with Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba in lighting. It consists of 3 mice in different positions, faithfully reproduced in resin. Seletti continues its exploration of naturalistic styles, a motif of never-ending inspiration for Malerba, who has already designed Monkey Lamp.
As a tribute to master still life painter Giorgio Morandi, Elena Salmistraro designed a trio of lamps for Seletti that are a modern reinterpretation of what he focused on most in his work – bottles in a still life. Morandi had a way of capturing the bottles with a soft light and subtle colors giving them an almost magical appearance. Salmistraro brings them back to 3D by “pulling” the bottles out of the canvas and turning them into the MRND lamps.
The Monkey Lamp is a wild yet functional lighting design by the Italian designer Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba. Like in much of Malerba’s previous art and design the Monkey Lamp uses a naturalistic figure to explore relationships between people and animals.
OUTDOOR MONKEY LAMP
The original four poses are all available in the latest outdoor collection, but the white paint has been switched to a special black coating specifically designed for outdoor use. The black paint also gives the Seletti Monkey Lamps a new aesthetic, ensuring that they stand out during the daytime and look mysterious as the LED light shines on them at night.
VERNER PANTON FLOWERPOT LAMPS
Verner Panton is one of the iconic designers of the last century. He was made famous for designing a cardboard house and creating the 'Panton Chair' for Vitra. His designs are still influencing designers and architects today and are hugely popular. An object cannot become a design icon until it has stood the test of time and appears naturally in different settings. The Flowerpot lamp is just that!
