Santa & Cole Gatcpac Floor Lamp
The Santa & Cole Gatcpac lamp is a focus of indirect light with an adjustable shade, expressing the utility of machines for living.
A worldly object made entirely of aluminium, it exudes a sense of history.
Opposed to nineteenth century decoration, Josep Torres Clave was the driving force behind GATCPAC and their post-war rationalism:
standardisation, mass production, the importance of the group over the individual.
Conceived as a machine a illuminer, strikingly modern in its admirably pure and clean stripped down lines,
this lamp for indirect light with its adjustable shade was used by various members of the Gatcpac in a variety of versions
and for a full range of purposes, becoming one of the hallmarks of the group.
The bell-shaped shade points to the lamp’s function. An upper lever allows you to shift its position. With its ascetic,
machine-age air, the Santa & Cole Gatcpac lamp is a fine example of precision, rigour and clarity of design.
