Gatto Large Table Lamp

By Flos

£425.00

Gatto table lamp is a discreet, gentle lamp, made in 1960 but still very contemporary. Designed by Achille and Giacomo Castiglioni for Flos, Gatto produces a soft, milky glow like traditional Oriental rice paper lamps. The internal structure of the lamps is a slender, white powder-coated steel rod while the shape of the diffuser is generated by a resin known as Cocoon, which when sprayed, only sticks to the protruding points of the structure. Cocoon (a synthetic fibre made of plastic polymers), was first used by the U.S. army to preserve unused wartime transports and thanks to the Castiglioni brothers exploit to give life to a beautiful timeless object. Also available in a smaller version.

H 56 cm, dia 35 cm
