Fil de Fer is a lighting fixture made of shaped, woven aluminium wire, which is lit on the inside by tiny bulbs. Designed and made by Enzo Catellani, it is the creation closest to his heart. Developed almost twenty years ago for a special commission, it was never used for that particular project and was hung up in his 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.
It is not difficult to find something in this world that can be manufactured slightly worse and sold at a lower cost. The true victim of this situation is he who considers only the price.
