The Pipistrello lamp meets nothing more and nothing less than 50 years

It was an avant-garde icon when they created it, and today, 50 years later, it continues to distill the most rabid modernity. And is that for the Pipistrello lamp seems like the years do not pass, now that it is celebrating nothing more and nothing less than its 50th anniversary.

This table lamp was designed in 1965 by architect Gae Aulenti for the Italian firm Martinelli, and since then it has become a classic in the world of lighting. Its appearance is different, different, because a bat is inspired by the shapes.

The lamp, which is still manufactured using the original molding techniques, is composed of an elegant metal base available in various shades, which gives way to a telescopic tube that allows to raise the height of the lamp from 66 to almost 90 centimeters in height and that holds a white methacrylate shade.

In addition to the classic design, Martinelli has renewed the designs with new versions with models with LED light, or in a smaller size, such as the Mini Pipistrello, or the gold-finished collector's edition that this lighting firm has launched to celebrate the birthday of this lamp.

Save energy: turn off or off, that's the point ...

I remember a piece of advice that was constantly repeated to me when I was a child: if I left the kitchen and came back in a while, I should leave the light on, since otherwise the energy of the fluorescent lighting produced an expense greater than normal consumption. This idea has accompanied me to this day, but it is never too late to change customs if there is a good reason to do so.

Lamp of gummy bears

What will the lamps that call my attention so much…? I don't know why but every time I see a lamp made with unusual materials, I can't help sharing it with you. This time I found a huge luminaire made with gummy bears. From afar it looks like a sumptuous lamp of tears of colored glass, but seeing it in detail an army of small sweet bears is guessed.

Wicker lamps to give the rustic touch to your home

If you have a point of light for a fault where you don't really need much light, your perfect allies are wicker lamps. They are a perfect way to set a room and give it a rustic feel. Of course, if you choose the very worked screens you may find that they do not give all the light you would like, hence they are the perfect model for sunny rooms that are looking for more some type of decoration than a lamp.
