“Pie de Salón“ floor lamp
Typical Floor Lamp from the 1960s.
The floor lamp with the euphonious name “Pie de Salón” is the most visible legacy of Jaume Sans, a painter, sculptor and member of the Catalan surrealists’ movement. A designer of furniture and lamps and furniture as well, he designed this lamp as early as 1963. The lamp has been restored since 1999, by Santa & Cole in Barcelona, busy truffle pig of the trade. Santa & Cole searches for and - we are also spiritually akin to them - with the self-image of a publisher in search of unappreciated fruits of 20th-century European artisan and industrial culture with the aspiration of cultural intermediaries – an attitude we readily agree with.
Height-Adjustable and Dimmable.
In addition to its elegant appearance, the Pie de Salón is also highly functional: dimmable and height-adjustable. And while the majority of standard textile lampshades on the market are laminated onto plastic foil or plastic-coated cardboard, the Pie de Salón’s shade is wrapped from narrow strips of pure, undyed linen fabric, overlapping and overlapping, around the shape-giving structure of white lacquered wire – resulting in a feast for the eyes: a white beauty which when switched on changes to creamy yellow and orange hues depending on the dimming level.
