Inspired by Summer

Through sophisticated craftsmanship, the Giardino lamps celebrate the eclectic style of the 1950s, when the Milanese bourgeoisie was experiencing new prosperity and charm by the exoticism of trendy restaurants’ conservatories.

Rattan, jacquard fabrics and contrasting finishes on a white parchment diffuser are stylistic references to the Far East and the culture of outdoor living. The Giardino lantern design brings out the vertical composition of these refined, light elements.

The hexagonal diffuser, underlined by black trimmings, is a reference to the Art Deco movement. An endless interplay of styles and details gives this lamp an outstanding personality, able to stand the test of time.

The Giardino lamps by Servomuto are entirely handmade, available in three versions: pink and grey, a design by Sonia Rykiel; green and black, a classic geometric motif (both by Lelièvre); and a black and white motif by the Finnish designer Johanna Gullichsen.

SERVOMUTO continues the story of a Lecce workshop that in the 1960s designed and produced lampshades for the most beautiful buildings in the historic centre of the city. Today, it is a Milanese company that offers a contemporary vision of lampshades, preserving their artisanal nature and timeless character. A new artistic language that combines sophisticated prints, original colours and noble materials, twisting the classic to make it still current.
