Saliscendi - 1957
Lamp for SuspensionDesign by Achille e Pier Giacomo Castiglioni
Designed in 1957, the next year two unique copies were created for the Milan Chamber of Commerce. Today, the Saliscendi finally emerges as an adjustable dual-emission metal lamp re-engineered with dimmable LED light sources. The luminous body and reflective disc slide silently along the cables, ensuring perfectly modulated lighting. Travelling in the opposite direction, the two elements diffuse more direct or indirect light depending on the distance by which they are separated.
