The corten steel table lamp, model Carletta, is inspired by the “doilies” 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.
Carletta evokes the image of grandmother Adelaide’s granddaughter. On long summer evenings they sat together in the presence of the dim light of the lamp so that the noble tradition would be passed down from generation to generation.
In this smaller-format specimen, the essence of Puglia’s tradition is encapsulated. Carletta stylishly decorates any room, even in perfect harmony with both modern and classic furnishings.
