Ettorino is the new Catellani&Smith product family comprising the T and Clamp table models and the F and Big floor versions. Preceded by the elaboration of a kinematic system deposited as an invention patent, the new articulated lamps are characterised by an essential design, customised by unexpected details and designed to fulfil precise functions. Also available in black and white finishes, they play in the colourful version with the elegant combination of primary colours, mixing blue, yellow and red. The presence of a red silhouette, a functional detail with a dancing shape, characterises all the lamps. Ettorino T and Clamp are designed as desk lamps, to provide proper lighting on the work surface, thanks to the possibility of movement and rotation. The light produced by a 10W Cob Led (1440 lm), contained in the cylindrical head, can be positioned at varying distances from the desk surface and, thanks to the rotation of the head, can also be directed towards a wall. The red silhouette, which hooks onto the horizontal rod of the lamp, ensures its balanced movement, acting as a tensioner. The cable dimmer, held in place by a small magnet on the square base of the Ettorino T and on the clamp of the Clamp version - suitable for surfaces up to 5.5 cm thick - also allows the light intensity to be adjusted. Ettorino F is the floor version, designed to be a reading lamp. The model retains the same features as T and Clamp, with a minimum height of about 130 cm and a swivelling arm about 70 cm long. The rod of the lamp is approximately 80 cm high and rests on a square base that guarantees correct stability; a small red button for adjusting the light intensity is housed here. Ettorino Big is instead a large floor lamp, designed to illuminate a living area or a table up to 200 cm long. With a minimum height of about 210 cm, as well as offering direct downward illumination, adjustable in intensity thanks to a red button on the shaft of the lamp, it is equipped with a second light source equipped with a dichroic filter lens, which projects 'a luminous magic' on the ceiling in unexpected magenta tones, activated by a second independent black button.
