Piloh's Jaco Series Lamps are made of concrete, iron and, wool. The lampshades are shaped from raw wool through a complex process done entirely by hand. The soft shades strike an aesthetic balance with the rigid, minimalist stem and base. This lamp measures 12 x 12 x 227 cm; the lampshade measures 12 x 12 x 70 cm. This design is a limited edition of 16.
Based in Spoleto, Piloh Studio was launched in 2010 by Italian designer Paola Santilli. Drawing inspiration from nature, the studio takes an ecological approach to design, embracing natural materials and traditional handcrafting techniques to elevate everyday objects. Through experimentation with textures and organic shapes, Piloh creates unique pieces inexorably linked to the location where the objects are imagined and conceived, in Central Italy. In addition to its self-initiated work, Piloh takes on unique commissions for interior designers and architects. The studio has exhibited at Milan Design Week and Maison et Objet in Paris.
