First came the GT5, for average-sized spaces, followed by the GT7, the perfect large-format lamp for public spaces. Now comes the GT6, conceived for smaller areas. The scale of this family of hanging shades may change, but its essence remains the same.
With its 45 cm. diameter, the GT6 offers an appealing solution for public spaces because of its potential to be used in sequences within large areas. It is also an option for small rooms, where scarce space need not compromise aesthetics.
Black, red, and white. Three color options for three different ways of perceiving light: focalized, daring, or warm. GT6 inhabits homes and public spaces alike, making its statement as an attractive, subtle presence: the perfect guest, always comforting the spirit and never in the way.

GT4 is a large cone-shaped stitched cardboard shade idea for use in large spaces that require an inviting warm light. It was specially designed for the SiSiSí bar in Barcelona and started a fashion trend that still continues today with imitations in all shapes and sizes.
In the mid-1980s people sat in Barcelona’s SiSiSí bar and talked under immense cardboard cones that floated in the shadows. Gabriel Ordeig had painted the soft absence of light with an exquisite sort of dimness.
The GT4 shade was originally designed to effectively, economically and warmly light a long bar. It had to project a lot of light, fill the space. and make the people in the bar look attractive. At that time the fashion was for bars with cold lighting and harsh impersonal environments. Cardboard had been relegated to more traditional lamps. Gabriel Ordeig brought thin cardboard back to interior decor, humanizing post-modern designer venues with his particular vision. SiSiSí was decorated with earthy colours and traditionally classic materials. Warm lighting gradually came back to bars, bringing about a subtle change of psychological attitude: it was no longer necessary to appear hard, arrogant and inaccessible at the bar, it was simply enough to be seen.
Starting with a complex shape, Ordeig continued to purify the design until it was simplified as a cone. Its enormous size makes it an imposing presence and distinguishes it from a string of imitations. These magical cardboard cones were the forerunners of the Básica family and marked the advent of a style of lighting which, years later, continues to be fashionable.
