Designed by Armando Bruno and Alberto Torres, the Papilio series takes inspiration from the lightness of butterfly flight and the upward flutter of its wings.
A mix of simple design elements and materials culminate in a striking and bold vision. A game of light and shadow is created with the perforated elements that allow for glimpses of light at varying angles. While Papilio has a slightly retro quality, it is most certainly a re-interpreted contemporary chandelier. There are playful and trendy colour options but with the addition of a matt white finish, Papilio is even more adaptable to design schemes and large spaces.

Designer Giovanni Battista Gianola has always been fascinated by our ability to perceive things around us through more than one sense at a time, like sight and hearing; light and sound.
He describes how when we talk about design we immediately think only of the form of an object, even if the function is the most important aspect of it all – take for example musical instruments. Instrumental sound is dependent on the design and materials they are made from. Thus, the Sound collection was inspired and born; rounded curves and familial shapes formed from brass that grow outwards, producing an energy that surrounds and inspires. An extensive collection of pendants and wall lamps that deserve to be listened to as well as marvelled at. Masiero 2020 Showcase introduces us to a new matt black + brass option, available to order now. See the Sound pendant here or send us an enquiry.

“The premise was to make an interior lamp in which you could have a lightened surface that doesn’t dazzle”.
In 1996, Gonzalo Milà and Juan Carlos Ines designed a lamp made of aluminium, but at that time the idea was just a prototype. When the moment to launch Penta finally arrived, a very important change was made to make it happen. Instead of running with the idea of a folded aluminium plate, they decided to use a stamped technique which has resulted in a refined, bold and faintly industrial looking shade.
Three finishes have been chosen for Penta: Brass, Aluminium and Copper and these finishes are used respectfully inside and out. The interiors are purposefully a polished brass or copper while the exteriors are treated to an oxidation process to create an antique finish. What makes this pendant truly unique is a built in, flexible touch-sensitive dimmer by use of the central lower rod protruding from the base of the shade. Available to order now and coming to the showroom this month. View more here or send us an enquiry.
