As his very first product, Piccola is the original embodiment of Pablo Pardo’s “less is more” design philosophy. Created as a personal utility lamp, Piccola’s form is minimal, but also tactile, playful, and inviting of interaction. Supple Italian glove leather covers its soft, pliable base, which a user can tilt to any angle while its aluminum shade floats to remain level. It is this malleable base that maintains Piccola’s sensitivity to any position — sensitivity intended to make every articulation organic and personal. Piccola is part of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.
