First released in 1961, the Model 597 by Italian virtuoso Gianfranco Frattini is the lamp that launched him as a lighting designer. Its unique and playful form perfectly encapsulates Frattini’s extraordinary approach to the aesthetics of light. Model 597’s unique nylon fringes were inspired by both the world of fashion and the fringed entrance curtains commonly found in Italy’s bars and grocery stores in the late 1950s. Thanks to the array of lateral bulbs, the Table Lamps emit a 360o play of indirect light, softened by the fringes to create a rich ambient glow, while the reflective aluminium cover adds warmth to the uplight. Model 597 is light-hearted in expression, but serious about functionality – bringing sophistication, fun and character to interiors without resorting to superfluous decorative flourishes.
