FontanaArte Parola Table Lamp
Design by Gae Aulenti and Piero Castiglioni, 1980.
Made in Italy.
A classic design that fuses 3 glass technologies in its production. The float glass base with blown glass diffuser which FontanaArte was historically known for, is brought together with a borosilicate glass stem. Borosilicate glass was and is mostly used for labware. For lighting design, it is used in lamps and lamp covers - but prior to the Parola borosilicate glass was not something used as a decorative element in any lighting or furniture. So it brought a mix of modern glass usage along with the history of FontanaArte's manufacturing.
Parola provides diffused ambient as well as direct accent illumination. Choose from white or amber glass diffuser. The cord has a braided black and white cloth cover and in-line dimmer
