A collection of lamps that explores new lighting effects, experimenting with a metal mesh in two different finishes (steel and bronze). The diffusers have an extremely simple shape, yet with the metal shades, they prove to be enveloping while also taking on an architectural value. You can get a glimpse of the light source from the outside without being blinded, while the light spreads across the room and lights up mesmerising highlights on the metal mesh.

History of Pallucco
It was in 1982 when architect Paolo Pallucco decided to establish this company in Rome. A lighting workshop in the beginning, Mino Bellato helped to rebuild it into a designer company in 1988, which would eventually determine Pallucco‘s course of development as a company known for its daring and willingness to push the boundaries of what is possible in design, cherishing freedom of expression and setting new trends.
Since then, Pallucco has undergone various stylistic transformations and attracted a wide range of designer talents, who are always most eager to work with a company allowing creative freedom to thrive and novel visions to emerge as much as Pallucco does.
When formal minimalism was dominating Pallucco‘s designs in the 90s, the company has become associated with its Papiro floor lamp collection, based on a contemporary design created by Sergio Calatroni in 1989, now having iconic status. In the years to come, Pallucco‘s emphasis would be put on decorative designs.
Fast forward into 2008, Pallucco changes its tone, now embracing emotional design, without ever having to abandon its high standards for quality and managing to accomplish a well-balanced combination of sensitivity, functionality and sustainability in this new period of expression.
In the 2010s, Pallucco sees yet another change of expression, taking a bold step in the direction of functional irrationality and incorporating futuristic style elements in many of its designs. 2012 onwards, one can observe urban minimalism widely taking over, with designers such as Hannes Wettstein joining Pallucco‘s team.
2016, the company undergoes a major change when Lino Lando, a Venetian entrepreneur who is also the owner of Venetia Stadium, a specialist in producing Fortuny lamps, becomes the new, proud owner of Pallucco, thereby being able to take ownership of two of Mariano Fortuny‘s original designs under a single name and set up a new vision for the company, to continue on its course of success.
Pallucco: Shaping the Future of Design
In Pallucco‘s case, one will find a company invariably striving to explore the outermost regions of the space of possibilites in design. And it is this willingness to give free rein to imagination which characterizes and distinguishes Pallucco‘s approach from that of many others, who will rarely deviate from what is tried and tested to venture into new territories of what is expressible through an object.
To never fail to achieve this, Pallucco keeps enlisting the most gifted designers for its projects. Yet, none of their plans would truly come to fruition if a thorough research would not have been conducted beforehand to also ensure that the highest quality standards will be met – a practice to which Pallucco is firmly committed as can be seen in all of the products presented by the company.
From collaborations with figures of the fashion industry to the reenvisioning of ancient techniques and traditional designs under a contemporary lens, Pallucco always follows a creative urge and each piece of this company‘s designer furniture, accessory or lighting is therefore guaranteed to be a work of art.
Pallucco‘s Timeless Picks and Novel Conceptions
One of the timeless and unsurpassed concepts of the past to be selected by Pallucco to conquer the world of contemporary interior design is the Fortuny floor lamp. Originally conceived by Mariano Fortuny at the beginning of the twentieth century, this ingenious light has a full rotating mechanism and provides flexible height adjustment. With its spacious umbrella shade, which is available in various finishes, the Fortuny floor lamp emits light indirectly, as a hidden light source illuminates the metallic fabric within. This setup achieves an effect comparable to that of a natural light source, emitting a warm light that is soft on the eyes, and was originally invented to recreate natural lighting for the theatre stage.
To illustrate how Pallucco‘s creations also manage to push the boundaries of what is known from conventional light ing, Kazuhiro Yamanaka‘s Collapsible Moon for Pallucco can act as a good example. Made in the image of a lunar disk, this light has a remarkable feature: It is collapsible and so can be easily stored or transported. In order to achieve this useful characteristic, a special fabric popular in the sports industry was utilized and combined with spring steel to create a lamp which can be folded and manipulated like no other, while also adding a simple yet effective statement to the interior.

Design: Enrico Franzolini (2015) Architect, he studied in Florence and graduated from University of Venice in 1979. His passion and early artistic research translated in to numerous exhibitions, starting with a presence at the 1972 Venice Biennale in the decorative arts section. Besides his pictorial research, he became interested in architecture and industrial design. His studio, founded in Udine in 1981, faces very diverse design projects for scale and object but all very recognisable for his distinctive method and coherence. Numerous architectural projects have been realised and published, while in industrial design he counts many collaborations with some of the most prestigious companies in the furniture and lighting sector such as Alias, Cappellini, De Padova, Foscarini, Knoll International and Moroso.
