in the shade

March 18, 2022

This lamp, designed by emerging talent, Oscar Piccolo is so beautiful I want to carry it around like a little parasol. Affectionately called the, ‘lampada cappello’, –– cappello means hat in Italian –– the pleated lampshade sits on a squiggly base that makes it easy to twist around. Inspired by vintage hats Piccolo found at a local charity shop, the lamp is available in a range of chic colours. “I wanted to make a subtle lamp that’s not too imposing,” Piccolo says. “One that’s beautiful, even when it’s off.” Have a look at Piccolo’s London flat; white washed walls and a minimal aesthetic are an ideal canvas for this designer’s creative mind.
