Description

Gemo II takes its name from the Venetian "gèmo" which means yarn ball—and this table lamp puts the emphasis on the distinctive shape and texture of its mouth-blown opal glass shade. Designer Luca Nichetto maintains studios in both his home city of Venice and Stockholm and his heritage is also seen in the incised lines on the asymmetrical globe that suggest the artisan technique of glass engraving called “molatura.” Hand-assembled at maker Parachilna's Barcelona headquarters, the light has a convenient on-cord dimmer and a flat steel base in black-chrome electroplated finish.

Parachilna

Though based in Barcelona, Parachilna’s origins actually stretch all the way to its namesake, a desert ghost town in Australia. A random stop there years ago inspired Alfredo Valero and Roman Riera to eventually create a luxury lighting company dedicated to enduring craftsmanship, aided by European metalsmiths, glass blowers, ceramicists and other skilled artisans.

Collaborating with such notable modern designers as Jaime Hayon and Neri & Hu, partner Alfredo explains Parachilna’s purposeful process. “We don’t use industrial techniques,” he says. “Everything revolves craftsmanship, which means that there is a lot of work, from prototyping to finishing. When we say, ‘We don’t like it,’ we start all over again.”
