Francesco Feltrin and Strolz Leuchten joined forces to produce this lamp, and in doing so showcase both collaborators’ strengths. Feltrin set out to design something very elegant in terms of proportions, choice of colour and material, relaying a deep connection to both Anna Claudia Strolz’s expertise with lamp shades and regional material traditions. The duo visited Angelika Kauffmann Museum in Schwarzenberg together, where Feltrin was struck by the water–resistant woolen fabric, Loden — originating from neighbouring Tyrol, commonly used in Austria. He saw Loden used in the museum’s artefacts, as well as in Strolz’ workshop, and so developed a new shade that utilises this Alpine material.
Complicating Strolz’s classic lamp shade shape, Feltrin breaks and recomposes it with alternating colour and pattern — black and camel on the outside, and Strolz’ signature gold in the inside. The felt panels are connected by wire, in such a way that the light is not seen through the fabric but dispersed through the gaps between each panel. The base is a tripod of rectangular brass profile tube painted with gloss black effect, made narrower to keep the focus on the shade.
