Falkland 85 Suspension Lamp by Bruno Munari
Falkland suspension is a lamp with a spontaneous shape that is achieved by the contrasting forces of its components: the tension of a stretched tube of finely woven fabric and the weight of seven different-sized metal rings. A single light bulb and aluminium reflector illuminate the curves of the fabric.
A smaller version of the Falkland 165 — The lamp was created by Bruno Munari for Danese Milano in 1964. The Falkland shade has been realised by using a tubular elastic piece of fabric produced in a tights and socks factory. The tubular elastic material is given shape by the metal rings of different diameters in the hollow space within it.
The creation of this object is a symptom of the geniality of Munari in managing projects: involving a socks and tights manufacturing company in the realisation of one of the most popular Italian design light shades.
