Falkland Suspension Lamp Design by Bruno Munari in 1964. Icon of the 1960s that still looks contemporary, the Falkland is a study of light concentric circles of very human proportions suitable for residential lighting or grouped for large spaces. White elastic diffuser with tubular structure, offered in a fireproof version. Suspension lamps are available in three sizes and require assembly.
This modern pendant light focuses great attention on creativity and taste of innovation, out of the ordinary, and with highest care for details both of design and of functionality.
About the Designer
Bruno Munari's life (1907-1998) and career spanned the 20th century, and he was among the most seminal exponents of Italian design and graphic design. Yet he never received the accolades and recognition on an international scale that he so richly deserved. What sets Munari apart from other designers is that he engaged in a quiet, playful revolution, inventing and designing with humorous and modest creativity, challenging all conventions and stereotypes intelligently but without flamboyance.
Starting with the square, circle and triangle, in an age when sophisticated materials took center stage, Munari shows how simplicity of means may result in poetry. From lamps to "animated" children's books, his attitude of whimsy and sheer inventive imagination proves capable of delighting the child in all of us.
