“The premise was to make an interior lamp in which you could have a lightened surface that doesn’t dazzle”.
In 1996, Gonzalo Milà and Juan Carlos Ines designed a lamp made of aluminium, but at that time the idea was just a prototype. When the moment to launch Penta finally arrived, a very important change was made to make it happen. Instead of running with the idea of a folded aluminium plate, they decided to use a stamped technique which has resulted in a refined, bold and faintly industrial looking shade.
Three finishes have been chosen for Penta: Brass, Aluminium and Copper and these finishes are used respectfully inside and out. The interiors are purposefully a polished brass or copper while the exteriors are treated to an oxidation process to create an antique finish. What makes this pendant truly unique is a built in, flexible touch-sensitive dimmer by use of the central lower rod protruding from the base of the shade.
