The Falkland 85 Suspension Lamp, the smaller version 165 lamp, was created by Bruno Munari for Danese Milano in 1964. It 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.
