Bruno Munari

Falkland 165 Suspension Lamp


The Falkland Suspension Lamp was created by Bruno Munari for Danese Milano in 1964, and is composed of a single light bulb and aluminium reflector which illuminate the curves of the fabric, held in shape by the weight of its varying metal rings. Its distinctive shade was created using an elastic, tubular piece of fabric produced in a tights and socks factory, typifying Munari's genial approach to the realisation of his designs.

Munari is our Italian godfather number two – the first being Enzo Mari. We’re constantly inspired by Munari’s work; it used to be that if we hit a wall, we’d refer to his books. His view of the role and process of design remains at the forefront of today’s design context. He has a playful and intuitive set of values around design and education – one that has nurtured HATO for over a decade. As students it was always hard to source his projects and books, so we’re so happy to sell them here now.

Bruno Munari was a prolific Italian artist, designer and inventor associated with the Futurist, Modernist and Concrete Art movements – and best known for his experimental children's books, foam toys, futuristic light fittings and cube-shaped ashtrays. The idea of play as an essential component to creativity informs much of his work.
