Welcome to day 6 of our 12 Modern Lamps of Christmas. Hope you’ve been enjoying all the fun, gift-worthy lamps we’ve highlighted so far. If you’re not familiar with how I’ve chosen these lamps, look back at Day 1.
Then come on back to read about the next lamp…
Piccola’s cushy look and feel is courtesy of its base that is, as you probably suspected by looking at it, actually a beanbag covered in Italian glove leather. More than just a unique, touchably soft decorative element, this base also makes the light infinitely adjustable and stable once set in place. Regardless of the position in which you place Piccola, the handspun aluminum shade floats freely to remain level.
This super-cool design is officially part of the permanent collection at the San Francisco MoMA. When given as a gift, it will also become part of the permanent collection of any lover of modern art and good design.
