About the Collection Catellani & Smith PostKrisi
The PostKrisi collection utilizes glass fibre for the extraordinary light shades which create a lively play of shadow with the fringed ends. PostKrisi was included in Catellani & Smith's portfolio in 2004 and has now turned into a large collection comprising light fixtures for diverse uses. The suspensions appeal with a large range of versions, available with shades of various sizes and shapes, but the various wall lamps, table lamps and floor lamps are also attracting.
The glass fibre has fascinated Enzo Catellani because it is robust and formable. The irregular fibrous structure creates rough, uneven edges which are responsible for dramatic shadows onto the walls, ceilings and their environment. The shades seem to have been torn from a closed mould and have a charming unfinished appearance. Each light has differently fringed edges and is therefore unique.
For the first time, Catellani used strong primary colours for the PostKrisi shades. Today they are mostly available in versions covered with typical precious metals and neutral colours and produce the same magical shadow play.
To ensure that the unique glass fibre shades are always at the centre of the attention, all PostKrisi lights are equipped with discreet suspension systems or thin metallic structures. The simple construction and the special material they are made of turn the PostKrisi lights into eye-catchers in a room when the light is on, creating a dynamic light and shadow interaction, but also when the light is turned off.
