Prandina Wins Smart Lighting Award
Pandina celebrate success as they are awarded the Best Modern Decorative Lamp of 2016 at the Venetian Smart Lighting Award prize ceremony. Their new floor lamp Effimera won the award at the event, organized by Luce in Veneto. The jury was composed of lighting designers and influential personalities from the lighting world, evaluating the design of both the aesthetic aspects and functionality.
Prandina has recently released their new designs for 2016 and we’ve picked out some of our favourites.
The Effimera has an adjustable height which lends well to it suitability of being positioned in a living area or used as a reading light. The mechanisms used are discreetly hidden inside the structure and comes with an optional fabric lampshade for a diffused warm glow.
The Chan Design comes in huge range of variations ideal for tailoring it to the space in your home. The suspension light is perfect for diffused lighting and is available in both a white painted or brass galvanised steel structure. Thanks to the overlap of different structures it is possible to realize various compositions up to a maximum of thirteen lights for a personalised touch.
The elegant Vestale design is brought together by a combination of matte and clear glass. The shade comes in either a Smokey grey or White brushed shade, ideal for adding a modern touch to your home.
The gift table is designed by DINN! for Prandina. Its unique design allows the lamp to merge with the style of the furniture on which it is placed, creating a graphic element between its base and the surface. The collection is going to be further developed with the introduction of different colours, a new round base and a floor version.
The Santachiara opal blown glass diffuser is sleek and timeless. The harmonious design of the Santachiara combined with the glare-free light provides atmospheric illumination in every room.
We already have some of the most popular Collections by Prandina available online and more ranges will be added soon. For any requests please don’t hesitate to contact us.
