The floor lamp CicloItalia F by the famous light manufacture Catellani & Smith is based on a design from 1989 and appeals with a retro charm. It owes it mostly to its material, because rough brass oxidizes and gets a patina over time. The rough brass enhances the light's hand-crafted character.
Many may mean that the light head is reminiscent of a bicycle's light, yet the light fixture scores with its great flexibility due to an integrated joint, enabling to direct the light flow as wished. An additional joint on the light base offers even more flexibility. The lens made of mat glass located inside the light head provides an especially pleasant, diffuse light, while the sensorial dimmer integrated in the cable enables to vary the light intensity.
Because of its shape and the light produced, the floor lamp CicloItalia F is above all suitable as a reading light, in public and private spaces.
