Rare and extravagant 1960s cocoon pendant light in excellent condition. The Cocoon has a body diameter of about 53 cm and height of 40 cm and gives a beautiful diffused warm light. The beautiful pearl/silk patina is an indication the the lamp was in a NON SMOKING Environment.

Nota Bene: There are no taers or holes. The frame is slightly rusty on the top points which is showing through the cocoon but is only visible from above. Please see video!


Often attributed and very close to the designs of Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. In fact this cocoon was manufactured in Germany bei “ Goldkant Leuchten between 50s and 60s . Designer Fritz Wauer who is credited by FLOS for devising the technology of spraying the self wrapping foam onto metal frames. Just like Silk worms constructing their cocoon. After that innovation this was brought to the established Italian FLOS Designers like Carlo & Tobia Scarpa, Dino Gavina and of course to Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. This makes these Goldkant models the original predecessor to later cocoon lamps.

We think it would fit well with any Mid-Century Modern or even modernist or minimalist interior setting. Extravagantly designed and definitely inspired the works of Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni by softening the edges from square to round.
