BASE GHISA

The Base Ghisa, cast-iron lamp is one of Luigi Caccia Dominioni’s most minimalist designs. Even the name of this table lamp highlights the very essence of the object, cast iron being a fundamental architectural element. 

LAMPADA POLTRONA

The Lampada Poltrona lamp is as ingenious as it is unusual, designed by Luigi Caccia Dominioni to hang over the back of a chair or bedhead.The idea is taken from the finest tailors who place lead tape into their jacket hems to guarantee the perfect hang.  As Luigi Caccia Dominioni himself declared - the lamp is “elegant of course, efficient obviously but most of all eccentric”.

MONACHELLA

The Monachella lamp takes its name from the black veil worn by nuns as they go about their daily work and prayers radiating calm and serenity. Luigi Caccia Dominioni captured perfectly the demure and gentle presence of a nun in the subtle, downward position and angle of the lampshade. 

IMBUTO

The name of this lamp also explains very clearly the inspiration from which the form is born: a funnel.

CATILINA

Catilina is not designed for relaxation and letting go but for thoughtfulness and elegance. Catilina is essentially a stroke of the pen, a play on curves, an object that - as Caccia Dominioni liked to say himself - is “ethereal, no more than a series of curved iron bars”. Whatever interpretation you give it, Catilina embodies a product designed for comfort, thanks to the well- upholstered cushion, and dignity. 

NONARO

 The result is a sophisticated harmony of curves that define the seating system with its delicate armrests and legs. But he was also inspired by memories of a garden chair in the 20th century family Villa Il Nonaro in Varese.

ABCD

The ABCD armchair is the acme of design and it continues to surprise us today. Through subtle changes to Caccia Dominioni’s original concept and drawing, this very traditional reading chair has been updated to meet the needs of contemporary living. ABCD is at once classic and timeless - memorable for its fine details.

CHINOTTO

Luigi Caccia Dominioni loved to surprise but never to shock. His objects are a play on scale and proportion as you can see in Chinotto. With a wave of a magic wand this scaled down armchair is extraordinarily comfortable. It’s a miniature masterpiece that leaves you spell-bound. 

CILINDRO

When your eye catches the Cilindro ottoman for the very first time it looks remarkably familiar. The reason is simple: Luigi Caccia Dominioni’s acclaimed, classic design was popularised throughout the 60s and 70s. This perfectly-proportioned masterpiece of elegance is the quintessence of form and style.

CAVALLETTO

Its frame is simplicity to a T, a drawing on a sheet of paper that has magically materialised into a full-sized table. The architect drew inspiration from the easels (cavalletti) he worked on at Milan’s technical university, the Politecnico. This single object epitomises all the key elements of Luigi Caccia Dominioni’s design: sophisticated curves, clean straight lines, a creation that meets its specifications, is easy to use, simple not mundane and portrays the beauty of minimalism.
