Nouvelle Vaghe

Newly added to the repertoire of Barcelona-based lighting firm Santa & Cole is its Vaghe Stelle light by architect Antoni de Moragas y Spá. Designed in the 1980s for Brasserie FLO, it’s the most recent addition to the firm’s ‘Classics’ collection. The polished brass finish with hanging star pendants was inspired by ‘Le Ricordanze’ by 19th century poet and philosopher Giacomo Leopardi, who wrote of the ‘vague stars of The Plough’. Should the new Herschel telescope correct that line in time, this light will lose none of its lustre.
