Let’s just get this straight: this lamp is $260*. Compared to the Love Letter Light (also by molo), which ran around the $400 mark, that’s a bargain. Now, consider its marble base, which is actually a byproduct from the base for the Arco floor lamp designed by the Castiglioni brothers. Next, the little paper cap (“cappello” in Italian) is attached to the steel wire with a simple magnetic connection, which allows you to slide and tilt it into any position. Do you remember that it costs $260*? Such a nice price for a lovely little lamp. And, if you like, you can remove the steel wire and paper cap to move the light to other places, say, a wine bottle or a small hole drilled into a wood surface. More shots below.
“cappello is a modest tribute to Achille Castiglioni, Pier Giacomo Castiglioni and Ingo Maurer, designers we admire for the heartwarming effect of their innovative designs.” –molo
*Back in 2013, this lamp was $160; now it’s $260.
