The beauty exuded by the Cala stems from its simple, synthetic and essential form: a shade that embraces the light without containing it, letting it escape to yield very warm lighting. Its structure has always been made of wood, and now it’s also available in a black lacquered metal. An iconic Marset design defined by that most valuable pairing: form and function.
The new Cala with a metal stand is even more sophisticated: a structure that is easier on the eyes, and is lighter. Both versions speak the same language: the proportions, the harmony, the cosy light, and now with two different finishes to offer more possibilities. This collection is expanding, and this new metal edition provides a more neutral and versatile version.
650€An archetypal lampshade balanced on a tilted stem. Simple elements, exquisitely combined into an amazing geometric composition, recall basic forms matched with different materials for technological reasons. Despite its plain and simple look, this lamp clearly conveys the skills of Artemide. The lampshade is a lightweight plastic volume closed by two diffusers that produce a pleasant soft direct and indirect light. The joint connects the lampshade with the aluminium stem on a minimal support. These simple elements are combined into a plain and elegant object, where the tilted stem is counterbalanced by the lampshade’s volume. “La Petite walks on a wire, balancing between full and empty. There is no symmetry in its design, but there is order. A subtle harmony of elements disassembled, in equilibrium at the boundary between light and dark.” Quaglio Simonelli
