Pedrera 1950s PD2 floor lamp by Barba Corsini


A midcentury design with a modern twist has been reissued once more by Gubi - the Pedrera PD2 floor lamp.

Here's the history. The PD2 was produced for Gaudi’s La Pedrera building in Barcelona in 1955, part of Spanish architect Barba Corsini's renovation of the building (into flats). The light was produced to fit in with the 'feel' of the design, with inspiration taken from Gaudi’s chimneys.

The original design from 1955 was 're-edited' by Jq. Ruiz Millet in 1991 and returns once more today in steel and standing around 112cm high. If you want a piece of history in your home, it retails for £459.
