Living with Lampadina

Living with Lampadina

Giovanna Castiglioni, daughter of Italian legend Achille Castiglioni, has found a fun new medium for sharing stories about her father’s popular industrial designs: a flip-book. In Castiglioni in 2 sec you’ll find Sara Vivan’s charming illustrations of Lampadina, a friendly light designed by Achille for Flos in 1971 and relaunched this year in a range of new colours.

Inside these pages, we meet Lampadina the wall lamp, the table light, and the torch. ‛I have been asked several times to write a book on the stories surrounding my father, Achille’s designs, including anecdotes and episodes related to my family sphere’, Giovanna explains. ‛In this first project, I wanted to offer, in two seconds, one story of industrial design’.

“Objects must keep company” said Castiglioni, and this makes us well under-stand his idea of design. Good design, in addition to being functional and aesthetically appealing, must be easy to use, comfortable. This means that objects acquire a familiarity, one more reason to love them.
