A base, an arm, a shade; a square, a line, a cone; steel, brass, aluminium; and light. Gira synthesises the fundamental elements of a lamp; based on the study of the traditional flexo lamp, these elements are re-configured to endow it with the ability of movement. Its shapes give prominence to the light. It is discreet and versatile: the rotation of the arm and the positioning of the shade allows for the creation of localised spots of light to work, read or write in.
However, what truly distinguishes Gira is its function, which places it in a unique category; that of objects that can foster a more intimate connection between the user, the light and its surroundings. Santa & Cole has revived this classic of Spanish design in a new edition with a brass and natural and black anodised aluminium shade.
The Gira table lamp is part of our Design Classics collection, a group of objects created during different periods of modernity. Through re-editing, we remain faithful to the original design, although we incorporate technological improvements, linking up far-flung creators and new users.
