Artemide Christmas Promotion 2015: La Petite

Quaglio Simonelli

An archetypal lampshade balanced on a tilted stem. Simple elements, exquisitely combined into an amazing geometric composition, recall basic forms matched with different materials for technological reasons. Despite its plain and simple look, this lamp clearly conveys the skills of Artemide.The lampshade is a lightweight plastic volume closed by two diffusers that produce a pleasant soft direct and indirect light. The joint connects the lampshade with the aluminium stem on a minimal support. These simple elements are combined into a plain and elegant object, where the tilted stem in counterbalancedby the lampshade’s volume.

Quaglio Simonelli is the creation of two dynamic talents, 2569304-340x250 Andrea Quaglio and Manuela Simonelli, both graduates of the Università del Progetto, in Reggio Emilia. After their debut and and their two years collaboration with Philippe Starck, they founded their own design studio, dedicated to provide design services to several sectors of the marketplace,beliving that diversity is a source of creative richness.
They design technology products, create furniture and decorative objects, conceive the visual identity and product design for beauty brands, alternating industrial logic and artisanal approach.
The result of the meeting between two complementary sensibilities has been nourished by their history, by their creative gaze they direct on the world that surrounds them and by the mutation they love to induce on it.
In this way, they design objects that look familiar, yet contaminated with unexpected and poetic elements.
