Designed in 1957 by Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Saliscendi: sali (up) scendi (down) is one of the most emblematic lamps in the history of Italian design, a typological innovation that proposes a variable light according to the needs of the user. In other words, Saliscendi is the proof of a gradual transition from decorative lighting to others with a more flexible and intelligent use, able to satisfy multiple needs.
Today, Saliscendi emerges as an adjustable dual-emission metal lamp re-engineered with dimmable LED light sources. The luminous body and reflective disc slide silently along the cables, ensuring perfectly modulated lighting. Travelling in the opposite direction, the two elements diffuse more direct or indirect light depending on the distance by which they are separated.
