Fil de Fer Nuvola Pendant Lamp

by Catellani & Smith


Fil de Fer Nuvola 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 with other lights in the Fil de Fer Collection, the Fil de Fer Nuova pendant lamp evokes the image of a celestial cloud at night and looks stunning especially over a dining table, kitchen counter, reception desk or boardroom table.

The Fil de Fer Nuvola pendant lamp is available in 3 different shapes. Please make your selection in the Model 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.
