Product Information/Fil De Fer

Catellani & Smith Fil de Fer Outdoor

Arguably, the most well-known designer lamp by Catellani & Smith is called Fil De Fer. In German Fil De Fer translates to "wire" or "iron wire" and this is precisely the concept the lamp is based on. The Fil De Fer consists of a spherical body made of wire mesh, which is interwoven with countless tiny halogen bulbs. In manufacturing, however, no iron wire but polished aluminum wire is used. In its switched-off state, the Fil De Fer is already a real eye-catcher. When switched on, however, it turns into an impressive work of art that bathes its surroundings in a fascinating light. The Fil De Fer is available in different sizes, so you may illuminate both small and large rooms. The Fil De Fer lamp is available as a wall, floor and a ceiling version as well as an outdoor version. For outdoors, Catellani & Smith provides a Fil De Fer, whose light spreads enchanting magic over terraces or flower gardens. The Fil de Fer, which has been on the market since 2002, is completely handmade. It is a true designer piece that impresses through both form and function.

News concerning the Fil de Fer Lamp:

07.02.2012: The legend around Fil de Fer


Catellani & Smith is one of the most mysterious designer labels that has built an international reputation through the creation of exceptional lighting collections such as Fil de Fer. The fact is that Enzo Catellani, born in 1950, created the sensational Fil-de-Fer collection. But who is this man, whom little is known about and who has attained worldwide fame with Fil de Fer and other lighting design by Catellani & Smith? The lamp artist Catellani, who remains silent about his schooling, is neither a trained designer nor architect. It is known that he lives and works a few kilometers from the center of Bergamo, Italy, in an old mill. The production site of the Fil de Fer and a showroom are also located here. Catellani created a masterpiece with Fil de Fer that has to this day, ten years after the production of the first Fil de Fer Lamp, not lost any exclusivity or charisma. Each lighting piece from the Fil de Fer Collection is unique because it is bent by hand, giving it its unique shape and individual size. The designer found inspiration for this unusual lamp design, so the story goes, while he was searching for a luminaire design for the Roman Museo di Cartografia di Stato. Catellani commented on his own design of the Fil de Fer as a ‘wind-blown tumble weed in the desert’.
