Trenta is a lamp, made in a numbered and limited edition, which celebrates the light bulb and the first thirty ‘light-years’ of Catellani & Smith
1989 the origins
When, in 1989, Enzo Catellani decided to found Catellani & Smith, he only considered the light bulb.“The lamp doesn’t make the light, the light bulb does. The bulb gives shape to that light” was something he said over and over again. Over these past thirty years, the light bulb has undergone various transformations, up to its latest evolution, the LED, whose enormous potential Enzo Catellani was immediately able to envision. New forms, unimaginable before, have been shaped by his creativity.
This is how Trenta was born; a lamp that celebrates the light bulb, new technologies and the first thirty “light-years” of Catellani & Smith.
Held lit in your hands, Trenta reveals its magical power.
Just imagine, you can now bring light to places you were unable to before, screwed to its pedestal or simply set down where otherwise there would only be darkness.
Trenta is here, in your home, waiting for you to remember her, and what she is capable of doing.
In the meantime, she puts on a fine display. She knows she’s important. She knows she is a tribute to the shape of light.
After being presented at Euroluce Lighting exhibition in April 2019, Trenta goes into production in a limited and numbered edition (500 pieces).
Purchase orders will be processed from 01.11.2019.
