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 armchair, designed so that the different elements it is composed of were pressed, finished and then assembled, represents a very interesting study of the possibilities of having a comfortable armchair made with a rather rigid structure.

This fixture, inspired by the idea of creating a light source to replace the very decorative, classic chandelier with many lights, maintains the same decorative lighting technique, but makes it simple and unified.

(1960).  The internal structure of the lamps is a slender, white powder-coated steel rod sprayed with the ‘cocoon’ resin. The result is unusual volumes of shape that were certainly intuited by the designers, but not easily designable without laboratory experiments. In fact, the final shape is the result of a precise intervention: rotating the structure during spraying so that the fibre is thicker in the protruding parts of the structure than in other areas.
