Cono W, the conic sculpture of light by Catellani & Smith

 

Catellani & Smith’s lamps are not just lamps. They are sculptures of light, pieces of furniture that change the style of the space, enhancing its design and atmosphere. An example is the new Cono W, a wall lamp characterized by an elegant tubular structure in a distinctive cone shape.

With a height of over two metres, Cono W has different light sources at the two ends. The main one is located on the top part of the lamp and spreads light up towards the ceiling and the wall on which the lamp is positioned, thanks to an asymmetric lens and a high-efficiency COB LED positioned inside the structure, while a 1W LED gives off a subtle sliver of light from the lower end of the lamp.

As always, the finish of Cono W is applied by hand, and combines a bright shade of blue – spread with irregular brushstrokes to bring a textured look to the outer surface of the lamp – with the beautiful gold leaf that covers the interior, featuring the characteristic irregular surface that distinguishes a number of models in the Catellani & Smith collection.
