The Kiki lamp: Paola Navone for Martinelli Luce

For Martinelli Luce, Paola Navone - a dreamer, an eclectic designer and a globetrotter, strongly influenced by the Oriental tradition - presents Kiki, a lamp born from her stylistic hallmarks, a true citation of the small chains of lamps which, in Japan, are suspended outside homes and temples on occasion of festivals or to celebrate special occasions.

For Martinelli Luce, Paola Navone - a dreamer, an eclectic designer and a globetrotter, strongly influenced by the Oriental tradition - presents Kiki, a lamp born from her stylistic hallmarks, a true citation of the small chains of lamps which, in Japan, are suspended outside homes and temples on occasion of festivals or to celebrate special occasions.

The small, lightweight Kiki, which will be produced for the first time in France in the upcoming months is the result of an important collaborative effort with a big-name restauranteering-sector brand. Designed for outdoor use, but also perfect for indoor applications. Kiki is available in two versions, with 5 or 10 lamp fixtures.

At Light+Building, Martinelli Luce will be presenting two new versions; a rechargeable table-top lamp, a perfect choice for bars and restaurants, and a stunning 'cluster' composition ideal for dressing up a summer garden but also for use in any living space.

Paola Navone

Architect, designer, art director, interior designer: Paola Navone's creative soul is imbued with the flavors and colors of the South of the world she has known, loved, and lived, united with the tastes and forms of the tradition-rich West, always open to influences and always in movement.

This fertile mix drives the inexhaustible curiosity she brings to her research into materials, forms, and structures; to her enquiries into the present, the past and the future. She has curated numerous exhibitions and events all over the world.

In 1983, she won the prestigious International Design Competition in Osaka; in 2000, she was named Designer of the Year by the German Architektur & Wohnen magazine; and in 2011, she won the Elle Deco International Design Awards with two projects. In 2014, she was nominated by Interior Design Magazine to the Design Hall of Fame. She works with the most prestigious firms on the Italian and international design stage.
