Designed by Barba Corsini in 1955 to illuminate his newly renovated apartments in “La Pedrera” in Barcelona, the Gubi Pedrera PD2 Floor Lamp was a functional reaction to the lighting needs of these new spaces. The pure geometric shape and industrial perforated metal shell serve a functional purpose and can also be a source of ambient light to accompany table tops in modern living spaces.
The curators at Gubi make dwelling in the past look good. Their team of "treasure hunters" is on a mission to re-launch iconic designs from the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and today. That's over fifty years of eclectic, international, and groundbreaking mid-century modern design brought to the present.
