The origins

Enzo Catellani has designed his first collection of outdoor lights for Catellani & Smith in response to the trend that, over the years, has seen living spaces move outside into terraces and gardens, creating extensions of the house. Enzo Catellani’s main goal was to create a collection of indoor lamps suitable for outdoor installation; lighting fixtures created for the outside, but able to recreate the same warmth and atmosphere as indoor lights. Glass plays a starring role in this collection. This is how were developed Syphasera, Syphasfera –  both lamps created by the designer Maurizio Quargnale in cooperation with Catellani & Smith – and Syphaduepassi, which, thanks to their minimal design, integrate perfectly with the surrounding environment, as if they were part of nature itself.

If you want to make beautiful things, you have to produce them in a beautiful place.
