In outdoor furnishings, lighting must meet not only a practical requirement, it is also an important way of highlighting the magic of a building or a natural setting. This is why Ethimo, together with landscape designer Niccolò Grassi, has created collections of lamps specific for outside, inspired by the shapes and materials used in traditional Italian and Europe gardens, reworked with a contemporary slant. This philosophy has also led to the new Carrè collection of lamps, in metal and pickled teak, their refined vintage formal spirit teamed with cutting-edge technology: LED lighting. This light source combines superior energy efficiency, in line with the principles of eco-sustainability, with longer life and reduced maintenance. These are two much-appreciated characteristics in both residential and contract sectors.
