Smile-inducing Italian design

A lamp with personality is as rare as it is refreshing. In the world of Seletti, the process of discovering the perfect light is heightened with a sense of surprise. The Italian design company has been synonymous with creativity ever since it was established in 1964. Today, its products exist at the junction of art, design and entertainment. At this distinct intersection, you may find the Monkey Lamp, neon alphabet lights or suspension lamps as enchanting as the moon. Even the most eccentric concepts are infused with Italian sophistication.

Seletti’s Monkey Series includes: Standing, Hanging, Sitting & Wall Versions.

Articulating the Vision

Seletti’s lighting collections have continued to evolve, highlighting the voices of renowned international and Italian designers. Iconic objects of daily life are given a unique twist, such as Studio Job’s Tiffany Tree Lamp, a quirky reinterpretation of the luxurious Art Nouveau classic. Influential designers Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel also teamed up with Seletti to transform one of their favourite fruits into a witty yet extravagant fixture. The result is The Banana Lamp, available in three models (Huey, Dewey and Louie). Designer Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba rounds out the wild world with animal-inspired creations such as the Monkey Lamp, Elephant Lamp and Mouse Lamp collections.

 Even Seletti’s more restrained lighting solutions convey excitement, such as Emanuele Magini’s Multilamp, which captures the electric atmosphere of an Italian football match. Meanwhile, the elegant Turn ceiling lamp by Alessandro Zambelli unites the history of woodturning with modern minimalism. The stunning white porcelain lamps can be hung individually or in groups to create a captivating effect.
