Pipistrello flies to the table!
The feather in the cap of Martinelli’s new proposals is the celebrated Pipistrello-Med lamp (Gae Aulenti, 1965) repro- duced in its original form but in a new table-lamp size, half-way between the iconic original lamp famous the world over and the Minipipistrello, proposed in mini dimension.
As Emiliana Martinelli explains, “We wanted to propose a new version of the Pipistrello table lamp with a diameter of 40 cm and a height ranging from 50 to 62 cm. This is a continuation of the tribute to Gae Aulenti, and also a way of showing how the design input behind this lamp is being constantly renewed without altering its authenticity.”
In the new Pipistrello, Martinelli Luce underscores the long-standing tradition of its design. Together with the Pipistrello, other successful lamps – the Cobra and the Serpente by Elio Martinelli to mention only the best-known – are produced and featured in the catalogue since their power of attraction is as strong as ever.
The Martinelli Luce projects are shining examples of a minimalist but always technologically-updated design philoso- phy. They never become jaded and manage to withstand the passing of time and of trends, retaining their charm and their power of seduction unaltered.
