Bright Ideas

The Caboche lamp designed by Patricia Urquiola and Eliana Gerotto is a bright modern interpretation of the classic chandelier.

Composed of dozens of solid high quality transparent globes clipped into a rather simple plastic structure, which tends to completely disappear leading the spectator's attention to the globes and the optical effects they create.
The effect of the spheres multiplying the light source into hundreds of bright points is captivating as much as old chandeliers are; it drags you into that suspended instant of absolute immobility where all the senses are dedicated to the pleasure of looking.


Designer: Patricia Urquiola

There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
