Oluce introduces the right light for book reading. Parallel consists of a cylindrical metal lampshade supported by a vertical stem positioned laterally. The stem has two matt-black metallic plates that are spaced apart and slide in parallel directions from the base to the lampshade. What makes Parallel unique is the lampshade, which has been covered on the outside with hammered leather that comes in two different shades: leather and sand. This is the first time that Oluce has used leather in a collection of lamps, and this shows its ability to explore new solutions and to continue to remain innovative. Attention to detail and an original visual and tactile perception make Parallel a modern, highly geometric lamp that has a place in a range of design settings and can satisfy the most diverse style needs.
The G.O. lamp is the revival edition of a model designed for Oluce by Giuseppe Ostuni in the 1960s. A lamp that, in the essence of its design, is extremely current, characterised by a vertical shaft from which a horizontal arm branches off and on which the lampshade is mounted. The arm, thanks to the system of joints, is therefore a sliding element that can be repositioned and oriented depending on specific needs.
A family which maintains the style of the original design, like the use of the cylindrical lampshade and the contrast between the materials with which the various elements are made. The revival edition is enhanced by precious details in satin gold, which stand out in contrast with the black nickel – of the arm – and the colours of the base and the lampshade, these last two available in three different colours: black, scarlet, and anodic bronze.
A tribute to the masters of lighting, names that have contributed to the history of design and of Oluce itself: this year the company presents the reissue of a product from the 50s by Ostuni and Forti. The lamp 1953 designed, by Ostuni e Forti, has two models, floor and table, varying in proportion and size but identical in their design which shifts the whole lampshade section from the centre to the side. A range that elegantly recalls the style of those years, such as the use of a shade in the classic cylindrical shape and the fine contrast of the satin gold – stem and shade’s interior- against the black – the exterior of the shade, the base and the stem grip.
