BADESS TABLE LIGHT by Antonino Sciortino
The Badess Table light is designed by Antonino Sciortino for the Italian manufacturer Atipico.
As a child, Antonino Sciortino helped out regularly in his brother's artisan workshop, forging iron. He later trained and worked as a professional dancer and choreographer. When giving up dancing, he turned full-time to iron and set up a workshop in Milan.
Antonino Sciortino's work, which he describes as "baroque minimalism", draws on his previous career as a dancer and his Sicilian heritage. His pieces are light, airy, graceful yet graphic.
The Badess table light is made of iron. The light bulb is included (HT50cm : 28W / HT70cm & 80cm : 42W).
Made in Italy.
