This material, known as cocoon, was initially used by the U.S. army to preserve unused wartime transports; it had already been employed in the early Fifties by George Nelson for lamps in which the structure was visible, while in these three lamps, the shape of the diffusers is generated by the fibre, which when sprayed, only sticks to the protruding points of the structure.

The design of the Arco floor lamp makes it pleasant and original at the same time. This is a typical element of the Castiglionis’ designs: inspired by common objects updated with genius and irony.
