NOTE:

Seamlessly sculpted from glass and sound-absorbing cork, the soft and friendly appearance of the «Pianissimo» lamp invites you to come share a quiet moment in the comfort of its gentle light.
Traditionally, the design of cork-based lamps forces an undesired downside in production; the excessive waste linked to the process of transforming a solid block of cork into a thin and hollow shade. By utilizing the flexibility of the cork to wrap the material around the glass, the «Pianissimo» lamp offers an innovative and material-conscious approach to its genre, dramatically reducing the total amount of used material. 
A soft and smooth outer shell shelters its glowing, energy efficient heart of LEDs, while the white frosted glass gently crushes its light making it warm and welcoming.
