Defined by a structural and material simplicity, the Cortina Floor Lamps and Table Lamp (2000) by Pablo Pardo simultaneously contain and diffuse light. The compact polycarbonate shade is virtually architectural, a thin rectangle of transparency that delineates the form and filters light through an external fabric diffuser, which is stretched over the top, down to the base. The floor lamps may be tucked beside a sofa, or placed in a corner, being well suited to today's versatile environments in which efficiency of space and versatility are key, while the table lamp provides unique secondary lighting on a bedside table or reception desk. Bulbs included: two 60W par 16 halogen. Full-range dimmer. Made in U.S.A.
