Molo Cappello


Cappello / Table Lamp

cappello is lit by LED and shaded by a paper cap, or “cappello” in Italian. A simple magnetic connection allows the paper cap to slide to any position along the steel wire that springs from the Carrara marble base. This connection lets the cap tilt, adjusting direction of light and giving the little lamp a gestural, anthropomorphic quality. A custom dimmer controls the lamp’s warm glow. 

the marble base is an artifact of design history. It is a byproduct of the manufacturing process for Arco, the iconic floor lamp designed by the Castiglioni brothers in 1962. cappello’s base will have machine marks from extraction. As an object that tells a story, molo has chosen not to polish these marks away.

cappello is a modest tribute to Achille Castiglioni, his brother Pier Giacomo and Ingo Maurer, designers that molo admires for the way they found inspiration in everyday life to create designs that move the heart.
