The Falena was designed by Alvaro Siza in 1994
The Falena lamp collection exudes a sense of lightness and elegance, offering versatile options in floor, table, and wall versions. It features an adjustable body and diffuser wings, allowing for precise control of the lighting.
The Floor lamp, in particular, offers directional light with dual intensity settings, although it is not dimmable. Its frame is crafted from chromed metal and features an adjustable body for easy customization. The pivoting diffuser fins are made of anodized aluminum, allowing for additional flexibility in directing the light. A sandblasted glass screen serves as a protective shield for the bulb.
The base and body of the lamp are electrically connected via a jack, ensuring a secure and stable connection. It comes with a black power cable, switch, and plug, along with a European two-pole plug power supply. Please note that the bulb is not included and needs to be separately obtained.
