Recognized as an avant-garde creation within Martinelli Luce, the Pipistrello lamp is now reinterpreted in the light of pop art and relaunched in an unexpected color – yellow. Martinelli Luce is an Italian brand of reference in lighting design and is available in Lisbon exclusively at QuartoSala.
“This is a color that inspires optimism, light and energy. Something that I identify with, because its connotations reflect part of my character”, says Emiliana Martinelli, the brand’s art director. “Yellow is also the color of friendship, like the one that linked me to Gae Aulenti, who I knew in my childhood”, adds Emiliana Martinelli, alluding to the Italian architect and designer Gae Aulenti (1927-2012), responsible for the collection inspired by the wings of a bat, which debuted in the 60s, quickly reaching the status of a global design icon.
QuartoSala, which already had in its curation with different elements from the Pipristello collection, including lamps different in size, use and colors, now adds to the your selection this new proposal based on chromatic boldness. In detail, the lamp maintains its graphic appearance, this time with the conical base dyed in vibrant yellow, in a creative impulse. Then, the black details and the Aulenti signature delicately engraved. The logo stands out on the final finish of the satin steel telescopic foot, an ultimate guarantee of authenticity, along with its certificate. The diffuse and warm light remains. More than a lamp, the new Pipristello asserts itself as an object of desire, and can be purchased at QuartoSala stores, in Príncipe Real and Paço de Arcos, together with the Cobra table model, which it also has the avant-garde Martinelli Luce stamp.
With more than seven decades of history, Martinelli Luce was created by an Italian family in a post-war context, contributing to a new interior language, inspired by nature and geometric shapes, later combined with technological disruption. Martinelli Luce first crossed paths with QuartoSala in the summer of 2022, integrating part of its careful curation and permanent exhibition.
