Parentesi Pendant Lamp
The name Parentisi is named for the parentheses shape formed by the nickel-plated shaped tube that lives on the floor-to-ceiling steel cable, which can reach up to 157" high. The tube allows the lamp head to move vertically along the cable so you can place it at the height that works best for your space. The head fixture is injection-molded black elastomer, providing direct lighting in four finishes: black, nickel, red, and white.
"Pio Manzù had the original idea for Parentesi,” explains Achille Castiglioni. “He thought up a fixed vertical boom and a cylindrical box with a slot for the light, which went up and down: you stopped it with a screw. He replaced the boom with a metal cord that, when bent, creates friction and enables the lamp to be in position without requiring any screws."
