The Básica lamp’s release in 1987 involved returning to warmth as opposed to the prevailing fashion of lamps with tortured metal tubular structures (normally painted black) and a dichroic halogen bulb. This piece laid the foundations for the publisher’s premises, became Santa & Cole's most representative piece and settled a new trend in European design.
8"w X 32"h. 100w / 120 V. E26 medium base.
Designed by Santa & Cole, Barcelona, Spain. From the manufacturer: For 28 years now, Santa & Cole has lived for industrial design, an art consisting of focussing on everyday objects in order to seek a better use experience, thereby leading us to reflect upon material culture. Hence, we edit elements of domestic and urban furniture and lighting, plant elements (which are living matter) and books (which are likewise alive). A range that is only apparently disperse, converging upon a single concern: not to accumulate, but rather to select; not to enjoy quantity, but rather quality.
