Funiculí is a new edition of a lamp designed in 1979. Lluís Porqueras has always sought an absolute simplicity in his designs, doing away with everything superfluous to leave the essence of the useful, simple object. 30 years on, Funiculí remains highly contemporary, both in its purist forms and in its features.
The name Funiculí comes from the concept of a “funicular” action – moving up and down. The mechanism for raising and lowering the lamp uses a pair of clips which make it very easy to change the height of the shade to meet the user’s needs. The shade itself can be rotated through 360º to point the beam of light wherever it is required.
The base of Funiculí is covered in rubber on the bottom, avoiding the cold contact between the metal and the floor and adding stability to the lamp.
It is available in black, off-white, red and moss grey.
At first glance, the ‘hat’ appears to be a classic-style floor lamp but it is much more than that! The elegant one-piece base supports a supremely functional shade. Because of the original manner in which this shade is mounted, it can easily be swivelled into a new position, turning your ‘downlighter’ into an ‘uplighter’. Both the shade and the base are offered in three different colours, which can be freely combined with each other.
This year, the colorful, sonorous Tam Tam, already so multifunctional, now comes in a new linear version that retains its fun, dynamic roots. The new floor models feature a central pole to which either one or three colorful, rotating lampshades are attached.
These new members of the Tam Tam family are great for lighting intimate interior spaces, such as living rooms, offices, or reading nooks. Consumers can mix and match the color and number of lampshades to suit the aesthetic of each atmosphere, each interior and every need.
