An industrial-inspired lamp that can be positioned anywhere along a floor-to-ceiling steel cable.
The Parentesi was born out of the collaboration between Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzù in 1971. The word “Parentesi” (Italian for “brackets” or “parenthesis”) refers to the nickel-plated shaped tube that slides along a floor-to-ceiling steel cable. Internal friction between the tube allows the bulb to be positioned anywhere along the cable without the need for screws. The pivoting socket allows careful direction of the light.

About the Designer
Achille Castiglioni
Milan, Italy
Known for designs that were both playful and purist, Achille Castiglioni’s rare perspective makes him one of the most celebrated designers of mid-century modernism. He’s also among the era’s most prolific, having produced over 150 objects during a career that spanned more than half a century.

Castiglioni began his design career at a studio founded by his two older brothers Livio and Pier Giacomo. A student of architecture, Achille was perhaps more fascinated by seemingly mundane, found objects, collecting anything from beer cans to bicycle seats. His philosophy was simple - “Start from scratch. Stick to common sense. Know your goals and means,” he would say. For Castiglioni, the result was often a complete change in behavior of an object, or the use of an unexpected, often industrial material.
Start from scratch. Stick to common sense. Know your goals and means.
