The corten steel floor lamp, modeled after Grandma Adelaide, is inspired by the “doilies” that our grandmothers, just like Adelaide, 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.
Grandmother Adelaide evokes the image of an old woman who passed on the noble art of Centrino to her granddaughter Carletta, in the presence of the dim light of the lamp, so that values such as mastery and knowledge would be renewed from generation to generation.
In this larger format specimen, the essence of Apulia’s tradition is encapsulated. Nonna Adelaide stylishly decorates any room, even in perfect harmony with both modern and classic furnishings.
