Conceived by Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzù, Parentesi is a suspension lamp designed in 1970 and produced by Flos the following year. This version, especially made in two wonderful colous, celebrates the 50th anniversary and includes a dimmer to adjust the light intensity.
Extraordinary, essential, bright. The Parentesi lamp by Flos is one of the most emblematic icons of Italian industrial design: it embodies the formal minimalism achieved thanks to a work of subtraction, through a creative process that hunts for simplicity. First conceived by Pio Manzù, who passed away in 1969 before completing the lamp, Parentesi was redrafted by great master Achille Castiglioni. The name of this suspension lamp providing direct light is inspired by a signature metallic rod in the shape of a bracket, “parentesi” in Italian. This choice was not strictly aesthetic, but functional, and its important innovation lies in the possibility of moving the lamp with a simple gesture. Few elements merge to create a perfect lamp, characterized by the vertical movement of the luminous body through the sliding of a shaped tubular steel placed on a steel cable, stretched between the ceiling and the floor. Pio Manzù had initially designed the Parentesi lamp as a cylindrical volume capable of sliding along a rod and stopping at the desired height with a screw. Castiglioni’s Parentesi is the brilliant evolution of this project: functional, made of few elements and free from any superfluous part, the true manifesto of the form = function principle. This astonishing lighting creation won the Compasso d’Oro award in 1979, and today is exhibited at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan. The light intensity of Flos Parentesi with dimmer can be easily adjusted. The main wonderful characteristic of the 50th anniversary Parentesi, is the color of the rose and floor support, which matches the element color.
