PEDRERA PD2 floor lamp
In 1955, Barba Corsini renovated the loft space within Antonio Gaudi’s famous building “La Pedrera” in Barcelona, transforming it from a simple laundry room and storage area into 13 modern duplex apartments. To reinforce the modernist style of the rooms, Corsini decorated the apartments with furniture that he designed himself, including Pedrera lamps and tables. Corsini achieved great international recognition for his architecture and design for La Pedrera. The inspiration for the base of the lights came from the vaulted ceilings of the famous house of “La Pedrera” whilst the cylindrical shape and unique, perforated detail of the chimneys influenced the form of the lampshades. The Pedrera table completed the overall architectural experience of the flats.
Table lamps, floor lamps and pendants:
The PD2 floor lamp was originally created by Barba Corsini. The rest of the collection is a direct inspiration from this. The H2O series was later created by Corsini in association with his protégé, Joaquim Ruiz Millet. The ANA pendant and ABC lamp were designed later by Ruiz Millet as a tribute to his mentor. The lamps are made from perforated steel plate, powder-coated or nickel-plated.
