Parentesi Suspension Light by Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzu for Flos

About

Parentesi Suspension Light by Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzù. Originally designed in Italy in 1971. The iconic Parentesi was named for the parenthesis symbol—a visual reference to the nickel-plated shaped tube that lives on a floor-to-ceiling steel cable. The steel cable can reach up to 157", and the tube allows the lamp head to move vertically along the cable to achieve a customized height. The head fixture is injection-molded black elastomer, equipped with a switch. The Parentesi provides direct lighting and is available in black, nickel, or red. Takes one 120W BR-40 Medium Reflector Flood Incandescent which is not Included. This light is UL certified.
