About the Collection Gubi Pedrera
Originally, the Pedrera light was conceived by Barba Corsini in 1955 for the new interior decoration of the upper floor of the Casa Milà. The iconic building by Antoni Gaudí was also known as "La Pedrera", meaning "the quarry", a less flattering allusion for the unconventional exterior facade with imposing and rugged shape which was at that time unfamiliar to the public. When Gaudí´s original concept for the upper floor was rebuilt and Corsini´s interior removed, the architect Joaquim Ruiz Millet discovered the PD2 floor lamp among the objects to be discarded. He convinced Corsini to reedit the design and added table lamps and suspensions to the collection. Pedrera by Gubi is manufactured since 2010.
The cylindrical shade is made of lacquered metal, perforated with a thin hole pattern and equipped with an internal diffuser of polyethylene. Simple suspensions and delicate supporting structure stylishly complement the design.
