Concept

Caravaggio Read is yet another addition to designer Cecilie Manz' iconic Caravaggio series. Based on the wall lamp's adjustable shade, she has created a whole new universe of Caravaggio lamps with functional, directional light. These small lamps do exactly what they should and have a design that is as simple and minimalist as possible.

The common denominator for Caravaggio Read is the classic shade installed on a flexible tube that makes it possible to tilt the shade and thereby direct the light. The table and floor lamp can rotate 260 degrees around its own axis thus giving the user an extraordinary degree of flexibility. The lamps are also fitted with a 3-step touch control dimmer on the stand for adjustment of light intensity. The small diameter of the base means that it is easy to position the lamp. In this way, the table lamp may stand in the window frame or on a shelf, whereas the floor lamp can be pulled all the way to the sofa and provide you with light exactly where you need it. The floor lamp is fairly low to ensure that the light is more intimate. The wall lamp can rotate 180 degrees, which – together with the flexible pipe – makes it very flexible to use. The switch is placed discreetly at the bottom of the wall bracket to make it easily accessible. The wall lamp is supplied with two fittings; one for direct installation to a power outlet and a slimmer version for installation with visible wiring.
All lamps have three narrow slits at the top of the shade that allow light to pass through. The metal lamps give a soft and targeted light, while the opal lamps sends out a warm, diffused light.
Caravaggio Read is available in white, light grey and black matt lacquering as well as in a hand-blown semi-transparent glass design. The neutral colouring makes it possible for the lamps to blend timelessly into their surroundings wherever they may be.
