The Xi table lamp consists of a large lantern positioned on a metal base with natural brass finish. The Cuoio Saddle Extra leather strap supports the lamp and can be used as a handle when moving it. The light can be adjusted using the on/off dimmer touch system. These beautiful table lamps, in blown glass and saddle-leather, allow themselves to be cradled by the space like lanterns. The light fitting combines two blown glass elements. The outer layer of glass, with its particular regular ridged surface, is transparent and comes in amber, emerald, sapphire or moonstone. The inner piece of glass, white with a pearl finish, makes the light warm and diffused. Unique pieces blown by master glassmakers of Venice with the use of body-tinted glass. Differences in colour and little air bubbles are due to the artistic processing of the glass and must therefore be regarded as fine details that make every product unique and unrepeatable. In Chinese Xi means “morning light” but also “in praise of wisdom”. When the XI lamps designed by Neri & Hu for Poltrona Frau are switched on their soft, full light is evocative of sunlight at dawn. The project seeks to convey a culture of light founded on the understanding that the start of every new day is like the beginning of life, infused with positivity and a sense of rebirth.
