Cold Glass, Hot Lamp


Nina by Italy's Penta is now available in North America. Designed by Barbara Sordina, partner at Marianelli Design, who makes this familiar-shaped lamp in "cold glass" -- which is characteristic of its thick edge and stronger colors.

Cold glass refers to a new material obtained by the mix of resins and glass powders.
This mixture is melted at a temperature of 150° and cast into the moulds. While 150° may not seem cold, it's not hot (1200°) nor warm 600°).
