The result of a collaborative project between Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzù, this 1971 lighting system was named for parentheses (parentesi in Italian)—a nod to the nickel-plated, bracket-like tube attached to a steel cable. This innovative bracket allows the lamp head to move vertically along the floor-to-ceiling cable for a customized position. Install two or more to create dynamic, grouped lighting angled to fill a living room or studio. The designers and the manufacturer, Flos, are represented in MoMA’s collection. Designed by Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzu for FLOS.

  • Achille Castiglioni

    Born in Milan in 1918, Achille Castiglioni is an internationally acknowledged master of Italian design whose work is represented in MoMA's collection. During his 52-year career, he designed and collaborated on nearly 150 design objects, from lamps to cameras to car seats. His work is known for combining simplicity with fun, along with close attention to how objects are used in real life. In 1997, MoMA launched the first individual retrospective of his work with the exhibition Achille Castiglioni: Design! Prior to that, his designs were featured in numerous exhibitions at the Museum, including The Modern Movement in Italy: Architecture and Design (1954) and Recent Acquisitions: Design (1967-8 and 1970-1). Castiglioni’s work has had a significant impact on the history of the applied arts and has taught generations about good design.
