Seletti - A History of Style and Focus

Seletti - A History of Style and Focus

Seletti - A History of Style and Focus

With a clear eyed view of how to inspire with creative and artistic designs across homeware furnishings and lighting products, the Italian company Seletti is a byword for original and unique style.

The company was founded in 1964, and has ever since brought an engaging and fun take on design work through a whole range of products. Often featuring images and icons used in a surprising or different way, the intellectually driven display of irony throughout the design team's work provides a stimulating, enriching view of homeware products.

Take the company's famous Banana Lamp, Louie for example (above). This playful and immediately striking lamp is a brilliant showcase of what Seletti do so well. Taking a familiar image and setting it as the frame for a lamp is part of the reason why the company continually surprises and delights.

Another strong part of Seletti's success story comes down to the fact that its production methods  are so high. The company is always looking to the latest technology and ways to make products work even better.

The above Bella Vista Garden Frosted LED Lights, White bring this combination of the most up to date LED technology with a user-friendly approach out into the world of outdoor lighting. The 10 LED lights are attached to a waterproof cord ideal for garden or patio use. As with all Seletti products, the lights are extremely versatile, so they look great indoors too.

 

Seletti have always had a keen eye for design work able to provoke a smile. That's certainly the case with the popular lighting designs featuring animal images. Animals from the present day like mice and monkeys, plus dinosaurs from the distant past, help to create a magical and fun look for lights.

The above Mice lamps are a collection of beautifully designed lamps featuring the inquisitive rodents in a variety of positions holding light bulbs. The Mouse Lamp, Standing and the Mouse Lamp, Lie Down (above)are both cast in resin and hold a single bulb, bringing an illuminating style to the home.

Seletti also have created a stunning collection of lights inspired by dinosaurs. The above Jurassic Dinosaur Lamp, Brontosaurus and Jurassic Dinosaur Lamp, T-Rex are both great for adding a quirky look to any indoor space. Containing LED lamps on the back of the dinosaur case, the two designs are perfect for lighting up any space favoured by dinosaur enthusiasts!

Perfect for kids's bedrooms or as a surprising accompaniment to artists collections in a living space, the Jurassic collection is a great insight into Seletti's continued success.
