Of MURANODUE, It lampada diamantata. Deluxe, blown glass white or black, is available in two different sizes (Halogen bulbs, respectively 200 e 300W) and prices 517 € a 765 Euro.
Decisamente moderna questa sospensione di DEMAJO, speakers with extra-clear glass and chrome metal frame. It's called Zabriskie Point (design: Denis Santachiara) , measure 77 x 55 cm and can buy which a 1624 Euro.
Very simple but highly effective even in the Stars BILUMEN, lamp produced
mark continuously since the early 90s and now available as well as in black and chrome in the new white finish. Dimensions Ø 69-84-120 cm with price for the larger size of 680 Euro.
Finally, a suspension, which obviously can not be compared to those seen so far as regards the materials, but in case of tight budget could do with some small measure her figure…I'm talking about IKEA PS MASKROS, Available in two sizes and two mini-prices ( 80cm diameter- 80,57 Euro, diameter 55- 50,41 Euro). The lampshade is made of paper and the rest in plastic, but my idea is that, given the expense of purchasing reduced, we could replace the canopy with a leading steel making it more sophisticated and elegant.
