‘(R)Evolution is the only solution’ is the mantra of the Italian brand Seletti that’s a regular at the Salone del Mobile, Milano. For this year’s edition of the Milan Furniture Fair, Seletti has collaborated with Italian designer Marcantonio on a peculiar window lamp to illuminate your space. The lamp is unrecognizable at first; it took me some time to decipher what it truly is.
Posted on Milan design week’s official Instagram handle, the lamp takes the shape of an archetypal window. The design of the lamp is such that “it creates an illusory opening to a blue sky dotted with white clouds, echoing one of Seletti’s signature patterns,” hence breaking the boundaries of space and time. The lamp features a white frame resembling a typical window frame and an LED to exhibit a day skyscape in the dark of the night.
Seletti has gained a reputation for its distinctive design approach. It is reckoned for designing quirky items ranging from iconic and colorful animal lamps to glowing gummy lamps in the past. The ‘Window Lamp’ is another addition to its unique lineup and plays on the reversal of the inside and outside environment. If placed against a perfect background, I am pretty sure your guest would find it hard to differentiate between the real and imaginary world.

“In lighting, we have always tried to go beyond boundaries, creating objects with a strong identity, which for this reason are either loved or hated,” Stefano Seletti, the company’s artistic director informed.
Available in four different variants, Seletti Window Lamp will be exhibited at Salone del Mobile 2023. We are not familiar with the price yet. More information about the lamp will be revealed during the event, stay tuned.
