Catellani & Smith Growing in Popularity!
The newest addition to our family of brands, Catellani & Smith are proving a popular choice for their unique designs and dazzling finishes. The company is based in Italy and is know for its high quality and luxury style, making their lighting a primary choice for elegant interior design. Here are a few collections which are currently successful on our website:
The Lederam Range is the most desirable at present. W0 Wall and W Small Wall light designs have drawn people in with their stunning metallic finish. Energy efficient LED light source in a beautiful warm white, creates an especially cosy ambience at this gloomy time of year! A range of combinations are available comprising of white, black, copper leaf and gold leaf resulting in an opulent piece of lighting.
Fil de Fer suspensions in the ø30 and ø60 sizes have created a lot of interest for their delicate, whimsical appearance. This collection is formed of natural aluminium wire and subtle micro halogen bulbs; this creates a beautiful glowing appearance which suits a diversity of interiors. Fil de Fer is also available in an anodized gold finish, which has a very striking effect. With a wide choice of sizes and variations this range can achieve the desired style for your interior design.
Another highly sought after collection is Lucenera, a technical luminaire with a simplistic design to provide perfect task lighting. Enzo Catellani designed this range to make the light source the most important element, and the lamp itself blends into the surroundings. The bodies are all adjustable to allow the user complete control of the light and where it is needed. Lucenera uses technical LED bulbs to effectively illuminate a select area, the lamp body comprises of carbon fibre, a flexible pipe and nickel detailing.

NEW BRAND - Catellani & Smith
NEW BRAND – Catellani & Smith!
We are very pleased to announce that we are now official dealers of Catellani and Smith! After meeting them at Clerkenwell Design Week we were impressed with their original and innovative collection of lighting.
Catellani and Smith pride themselves on the value of crafmanship that was born from the story of a meeting between a Blacksmith and Logan Smith.
The brand has been evolving for 25 years and are always keeping abreast of the latest innovative technologies. This has allowed Catellani & Smith to strengthen and expand its presence on the lighting market worldwide.
Take a look at some of our favourite product families:
Catellani & Smith Lederam Family: These small discs with their soft, warm colour enclose a next-generation mains voltage LED module, so no transformer is required and they can be easily dimmed.
Catellani & Smith Fil de Fer Family: Pefectly sculpted and intertwined aluminium wire that is lit up from within by micro halogen bulbs.
Catellani & Smith Lucenera Family: Lucenera is a technical light that stems from a simple concept - making the light, rather than the lamp, the star of the show.
Catellani & Smith Stchu-Moon Family: Stchu-Moon separates the light source from the lamp, which takes on its own aesthetic value as a result.
Catellani & Smith is now available for purchase here at David Village Lighting.
“When I create a lamp, I always start off with a prototype;
my laboratory is a workshop where I continually accumulate materials, components and objects of all different kinds;
and this is where everything was born... I assemble, weld, bend, shape... I need to feel the materials, to see how they play with light.
In this initial stage there is no real design, the idea must take shape immediately, becoming an object.
Only at this point do I move on to the traditional design phase: feasibility, technical characteristics and much more;
it’s an idea of light, and the desire to tell about it, which guides me through the construction.
I believe that this process can be felt in products by Catellani & Smith.
A large part of my production is made up by pieces that require a great amount of craftsmanship:
it’s the hand of the craftsman that builds them, his manual work that creates the imperfection, making a truly unique object.”
