Parentesi Lamp

Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzu for Flos - 1971

Borne out of a 1971 collaboration between Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzù, the Parentesi was named for the parenthesis symbol—a visual reference to the nickel-plated shaped tube that lives on a floor-to-ceiling steel cable. A design classic, Parentesi provides direct lighting with unlimited ways to set the direction and height of the light. The lamp is attached to a steel tube in a black, red or nickel finish, which slides vertically on a ceiling-to-floor steel cable. The cable accommodates a second fixture if needed.
