The Piccola Story

As his very first product, Piccola is the original embodiment of Pablo Pardo’s “less is more” design philosophy. Created as a personal utility lamp, Piccola’s form is minimal, but also tactile, playful, and inviting of interaction. Supple Italian glove leather covers its soft, pliable base, which a user can tilt to any angle while its aluminum shade floats to remain level. It is this malleable base that maintains Piccola’s sensitivity to any position — sensitivity intended to make every articulation organic and personal. Piccola is part of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.

Always LevelLimited only by the imagination, the post can be adjusted
to any angle while the shade gimbals to remain level at
all times.

A design classic, Piccola
brings sculptural light to
every environment.
