Pablo Designs - The new VELLA Collection – Curved aluminum form subtly captures and releases light from within to wash wall and floor
Pablo’s designs have been propelled to the forefront of American contemporary lighting by an uncompromising devotion to simplicity and utility. By fusing the highest technical sensibilities with the most appropriate material palette, Pablo is able to create unique, timeless designs with the power to transform any environment. Pablo was founded in San Francisco in 1993 by Venezuelan-born industrial designer Pablo Pardo. Embracing a less-is-more ideology, Pablo frequently challenges traditional design metaphors, developing more practical solutions distilled down to their essence, form and light. A common thread links all of its creations, valuing permanence and sustainability, discarding the disposable mindset so prevalent today. Its mission is to create designs that deepen the relationship between objects, their users, and their environments.
Giraffa – Desk Light
Smart and playful, the new Giraffa Desk Lamp features and expressive purity of form and warm, tactile finishes that give the object a personal feel.
Giraffa’s endearing personality and versatile design are at home anywhere: on your desk, atop a nightstand, or tucked into a cozy reading nook. A 360° rotating shade combined with an angled post provides multiple lighting possibilities, allowing this petite lamp to cast both direct and ambient light. Giraffa is available in a trio of premium finishes: brushed copper, black anodized aluminum and gloss white lacquer. Giraffa’s warm and fully dimmable LED light source is rated for 50K hours to provide a lifetime of personal enjoyment.
VELLA Collection – Indoor Light
The new Vella series is a dynamic family of luminaires designed to be completely adjustable via two independently swiveling louvers, inviting the user to sculpt light and shadow. Vella’s sweeping curved aluminum form subtly captures and releases light from within to wash wall and floor, creating just the right mood in any room. The lamp employs state-of-the-art, warm-white LED technology, with full range dimming capabilities. Both sophisticated and playful, Vella is suited to perfectly complement all indoor environments.
