Splügen Bräu hanging lamp, 1961
Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni
Aluminum, 9 13/16 x 15 3/4 x 15 3/4"
Manufactured and lent by Flos
Created for the beerhouse that the Castiglioni's designed and named after it, Splügen Bräu is a scenographic redesign of a hanging lamp with the gleaming surface of thermoses and cocktail shakers. The design is not just about looks though as the ribbed outside surface also facilitates heat dispersion.
