U., four different models for the new lamp by Catellani & Smith

 

Essential name, minimal shape. There is an authentic and indissoluble common thread between appearance and substance of the new U. lamp by Catellani & Smith.

U. comes in four different models, two floor versions, U. F Up and U. F Flex, and two wall versions, U. W Flex and U. W, all available with black or white finishes and with low voltage COB LED light source.

U. F Up is a floor lamp with simple lines, whose semi-cylindrical screen that hosts the light source is covered with gold coloured leaf inside, and here is where something magical happens: the silhouette of a dancer appears in the centre of the “U” that gives the lamp its shape and its name.

In addition, the steel silhouette is fitted with a magnet at the bottom and can be positioned anywhere on the metal plate in the screen.

The floor lamp in the line is called U. F Flex and it too features a slightly smaller screen than that of the Up lamp; the distinguishing feature of this version is the directional brass flex and the 350° rotating screen, which enables the light to be pointed wherever it is required.

The U. W Flex wall lamp is also characterised by the flex located at the top of a rectangular base, and by the distinctive U that holds the COB LED light source, creating a bright glow.

Finally, the other wall version, the U. W, sits on a circular base and features a joint that enables the semi-cylindrical screen to rotate, designing a beam of light that diffuses on the wall.

For a bright space in this age of darkness.
