Design at its Best

Only very occasionally do you see a design which literately stops you in your tracks. Enter Cappello, a lamp designed by Canada’s Molo Design. It ticks all the boxes on its own merit but add the fact that the marble base is from the hole which is cut out from the marble base of Castiglioni’s iconic  Arco floor lamp (a hole incidentally which was incorporated into the design of the Arco to enable a rod to be inserted to aid carrying the heavy base) and you not only have a beautiful lamp but a salute to design hero Achille Castiglioni as well. Stunning.
