Every tube is bent, cut, welded and highly polished by hand.

Source of illumination: Three halogen/LED/Edison filament light bulbs, dimmer able, wiring for US and European market available.
Floating trees with unusual and contorted roots which spurt out of the water like spiders crawling on the surface, it was the mangrove forest, silent guardian of the Amazon River, who gave the inspiration for the lamp Mangrovia. The impenetrable roots transform into shiny tubes made from stainless steel shaped and welded patiently by hand, one by one.
Each floor lamp is hand signed and numbered by the artists (Engraved). 100% handmade in Italy, comes with a “Certificate of Authenticity.”

Based in: Ancona
The Atelier Barberini & Gunnell was founded by the architects and designers Francesco Barberini and Nina A. Gunnell as the result of a passion followed for a long period of time, creating artworks far from the industrial reality; one-off pieces and limited editions.
The choice of the best and most precious materials, the maniacal cure for detail are the basis of their modus operandi aiming to create timeless pieces.
Every artwork has its inspirational background, it’s story.
Gigantic Spiders as tables which pass by the forests of enormous Mangrove floor lamps, transparent, yet heavy glass Origami tables, Chained up tables which seem to revolt against the immobility of the four legs.
Abandoning the mere functionality and rediscovering emotions; from the warm perfume of wood, losing oneself in the transparent magic of crystal to the cold and sterile steel, thought by mankind for mankind, mirror polished symbol of progress.
Barberini & Gunnell collaborate with the auction houses Sotheby’s, Bonhams, Tajan, Dorotheum, international galleries Priveekollektie, Ammann and private collectors.
The bench Get Lost! in mirror-polished stainless steel, limited edition of 12, was selected by New York architect Peter Marino for the DIOR flagship store in London.
