Picia Lamp Story
The Picia collection, whose name means tiny in the language spoken in Trieste is a range of table and suspension lamp designed to merge the process of hand-blown glass and the handmade production on lathe of natural conglomerate cork. The playful shape is inspired by the little helper of Gyro Gearloose (part of the Walt Disney’s Duck universe) whose comic books filled the designer’s childhood.
The simplicity of shape and use of a classic material like glass and unusual in its combination such as cork create a gorgeous contrast, enhanced by the colours palette chosen for the glass adding a contemporary feel. The designer wanted to emphasize the delicate match of glass and cork, drawing the attention on it as an elegant and functional detail allowing the shade to be removed easily for bulb changing. In the table version the wiring is hidden in the small base thanks to a matte black steel cap completing the lamp.

“Design is life , in continuous variation and motion, you can live or refuse it but at the end you will be involved even against your will. Design helps reinvent ourselves, being challenged, forcing the human being to turn attention to the future. Impetuous desire of improvement.“ - Enrico Zanolla
