    Eco Friendly

    Eco Friendly items utilize energy efficient technology or sustainable manufacturing processes to provide a product that saves operating costs while being a more responsible environmental choice.

    Eco Friendly products include Compact Fluorescent light bulbs, LED light bulbs, and items that utilize sustainable materials such as bamboo or use post consumer recycled content.

Design by Alberto Meda, Riccardo Sarfatti, Paolo Rizzatto, 1992.

The designers took a second look at ceiling lamps, as neglected as they are widespread, in search of an intelligent, elegant solution. Adopting a sober approach, they opted for a die-cast aluminum frame containing an easily assembled and inspectable diffuser. Modular, impermeable, designed to hold various light sources, the Metropoli system received the Compasso d'Oro award in 1994.

This die-cast aluminum lamp with a diffuser made of prismatic glass or opal polycarbonate (available only for fluorescent version), provides a pleasant continuity of form between the interior and exterior of constructions.

Finish: painted or polished aluminum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Industrial Elegance I am using 2 of these in a location I would like to put recessed lights in but can't, so was reluctant to spend this much money but after trying 2 low=priced options I decided to spend the extra. These lights are gorgeous, very industrial- in my space they relate well to the stainless appliances and the metal base of the chairs. I hadn;t considered the metal being so much of a visual factor, but against a white ceiling it is, but in a good way. I was originally looking for something to disappear- these are low profile and clean looking so don't intrude but alsio add something of their own. I went with the oversized version in a small space and am very pleased with the results.Solid, they impressed my electrician.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a sexy classic I love this light - so great looking. I wish it could light more around the side, but this is the price you pay for good looks.
