The corten steel table lamp, model Carla, is inspired by the “doilies” that our grandmothers used to make in the olden days.
The doily was a small artifact made with crochet, lace-making, and knitting needles. It usually had a decorative function. With its rounded shape, it highlighted vases, figurines, and trinkets, preventing them from scratching surfaces.
The shapes and textures of those doilies have been re-interpreted by designer Massimiliano Saracino, who has masterfully transformed them into original and extraordinarily ingenious pieces of furniture.
Carla evokes the image of Grandma Adelaide’s granddaughter. A granddaughter who was older than little Carletta. But who still loved to sit together with her grandmother in the presence of the dim light of the lamp, so that the noble tradition would be handed down from generation to generation.
In this larger-format specimen, the whole essence of tradition is encapsulated, bursting forth in all its aesthetic flavor. Carla stylishly decorates any room, even in perfect harmony with both modern and classic furnishings.
