The Aida lamp defies gravity while diffusing a pleasant ambient light thanks to the large acrylic lampshade which floats above the aluminum base.
The Aida lamp is in line with the subtle work of the Italian architect, sculptor and designer Angelo Mangiarotti, renowned for his researched and controlled approach to materials. In particular, we owe him several buildings where thin pillars support vast and heavy ceilings.

The Italian architect, sculptor and designer Angelo Mangiarotti was born in Milan in 1921. Mangiarotti is said to have said: "Happiness comes from honesty". A quote that alludes to his holistic approach to design rooted in the firm belief that architecture was a practical discipline and that industrial design was an expression of refined craftsmanship.
He wanted each individual material to be respected and used appropriately and honestly. Beyond his many architectural feats, Mangiarotti's oeuvre includes a wide range of creative endeavors from sculpture to products and lighting.
During his career he has held lectureships in several renowned design and architecture schools in Italy and abroad, he has won numerous awards in design and architecture, and his work has been included in exhibitions and collections in some of the leading art and design institutions such as Center Pompidou in Paris, Triennale Design Museum in Milan and Gallery MA in Tokyo.
