Powered by LED technology, Noctambule floor lamps are innovative lighting fixtures designed by Konstantin Grcic. The transparent hand-blown body blends into any room when unlit, but it makes its presence known when it glows at night. Available in a variety of designs and combinations, this dimmable lamp is created from stackable cylindrical bodies at low and high heights with optional dome and cone-shaped heads for a more direct light source. Noctambule floor lamps can be used as a pendant light or a standing lamp, depending on the need and preferences.
Noctambule is available in an array of styles: Cone Top with Small Base in one or two high cylinders; Short Cylinders with Small Base in one, two, three or four low cylinders; Tall Cylinders with Cone or Bowl Top and Large Base in three high cylinders with a bowl, three high cylinders with a cone, or four high cylinders; Tall Cylinders with Small Base.
“Designing a lamp is no longer limited to working around a given bulb. Today, it means designing the actual bulb or light source. This challenged me to think of Parentesi, a lamp that celebrated the traditional bulb in the most effective and beautiful way. Would it be possible to rethink the Parentesi lamp once more and pass the Manzù-Castiglioni torch on to the future? – Konstantin Grcic
Born in 1965 in Munich, Konstantin Grcic developed his particular aesthetic and became a well-known industrial designer. In 1991, he founded Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design in his hometown. His design work was often informed by his foundation in traditional cabinetmaking and included furniture, lighting, and accessories, often with the incorporation of unusual or innovative materials. Grcic uses injection molded plastic and aluminum die casting for the overall design of furniture pieces rather than regulating these materials to simple structural components. He has collections featured both at MoMA in New York City and the Deutsches Museum in Munich. He has collaborated with Authentics, Flos, Krups, Magis, Moroso, Muji, Plank, and Vitra. Notable pieces by Grcic include Chair_One and the Mayday lamp.
