L’Acquarello custom-order lampshades, Milano

There are many artisans in Italy, who take on custom orders. One such person is Paola Gianni, who creates custom-order lampshades. She had made the prototypes for the fabric elements of the G x L lamps, which were shown at Isetan. Her studio is filled with wire frames, tape, braid, fabric and even fur.

The G x L lamps have 3 separate sections; fabric stretched over a wire frame to the left, acrylic frame covered with Japanese Mino paper in the center, and a wooden box to the right. Paola had the wire frames made in precise dimensions, then stretched the fabric over the frame. Each section was made by different craftspersons, who have had years of experience, and the results were excellent.
