Fil de Fer Outdoor Pendant Lamp

by Catellani & Smith


Fil de Fer outdoor pendant lamp, designed by Enzo Catellani for Catellani & Smith, is a lighting fixture made of shaped, woven aluminium wire, which is lit on the inside by tiny bulbs. Developed almost twenty years ago for a special commission, it was never used for that particular project and was hung up in Enzo's workshop. Each time it was switched on, it enchanted everyone with its special, magical atmosphere. Enzo Catellani decided then to continue working on it. The lamp was later placed on the market and quickly became the most iconic lighting fixture in the Catellani & Smith range. Whether lit or unlit, on its own or hung in clusters, the Fil de Fer pendant lamp evokes the image of celestial bodies at night and makes for a stunning showpiece in outdoor eating and lounging areas.

The Fil de Fer outdoor pendant lamp is available in 3 sizes (Ø 50 cm, Ø 70 cm or Ø 100 cm). Please make your selection from the Size option above.

The Fil de Fer Collection by Catellani & Smith includes various pendant, table and floor lights made of shaped, woven aluminium wire which are lit on the inside by tiny bulbs. Please contact us for more information on the full collection.
