One of the simplest and yet colorful lamps I know. This design 1961/62 is the work of Achille Castiglioni and Pier Giacomo brothers, creators of many other wonders as lamps and furniture. It seems that was commissioned for Splügen brewery Milan (today, even this beer is sold throughout Italy…), hence its name Splügen Bräu. If you look at the images below you can see the original sketch and a picture of the 60 local full of these lamps (more pictures of the time HERE). Edits the Italian company Flos since 1964 and I believe that, in view of the images, could also call it “the perfect lamp dining”.

One of the MOST Simple though eye-catching suspension lamps that I know. Designed in 1961-1962 by the renowed italian brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni specially for the beer house and restaurant Splügen in Milano, therefore its name “Splügen Bräu”. The images above show the first sketches of the lamp and the restaurant and the original an image from the 60s. So inspiring… (more images and info here). Edited by Italian company Flos since 1964, I think it could also be named the “perfect dining-room lamp”…
