Picia collection, whose name means tiny in the language spoken in Trieste (Italy), is a range of table and suspension lamp designed to merge the process of hand-blown glass and the handmade production on lathe of natural conglomerate cork. The playful shape is inspired by the little helper of Gyro Gearloose (part of the Walt Disney’s Duck universe) whose comic books filled the designer’s childhood. The lamps were showcased during Milan design week in Ventura Lambrate and are part of a wider collection by Enrico Zanolla.

The simplicity of shape and use of a classic material like glass and unusual in its combination such as cork create a gorgeous contrast, enhanced by the color palette chosen for the glass adding a contemporary feel.
The designer wanted to emphasize the delicate match of glass and cork, drawing the attention on it as an elegant and functional detail allowing the shade to be removed easily for bulb changing. In the table version the wiring is hidden in the small base thanks to a matte black steel cap completing the lamp.
Picia can be hanged over your dining table, in your kitchen or on your night stand.
