As a genuine signature piece from our lighting collection,The Socialite Family presents its Gioia table lamp with a pleated cotton shade and an iroko-finished ash base. Also available in a coloured and lacquered version.
Gioia, a name that pays homage to Italy
Like all of the products offered by The Socialite Family, the Gioia table lamp owes its name to Italy. Gioia means joy in the mother tongue of our founder and artistic director, Constance Gennari.
This dual Franco-Italian identity is paramount for us. We are committed to ensuring you feel it, too. Above all, in the selection of our craftsmen and their expertise, where the Gioia table lamp is produced. Also in our inspiration, Italy being the birthplace of design.
A signature design
Designed by our creation studio, with a sculptural base suggesting a flower while its pleated couture shade suggests a dress, the Gioia table lamp is a signature piece. It is a manifesto where you can see finely worked materials, a choice of finishes and the incredible craftsmanship we hold so dear at The Socialite Family.
The Gioia light: a natural, warm iroko finish that accentuates the wood contrasted with a subtle pleated cotton shade. This results in an elegant piece, which celebrates our desire to return to basics, with a timeless, modern and retro look. Like the Panchina bench or the Cavallo armchair, the Gioia table lamp developed and matured in our minds over a period of months before finally taking shape under our fingers. It is representative of the quintessential The Socialite Family style.
Both the name and the shape of the Gioia table lamp transport us straight back to the 1970s. A prolific period in design as well as in fashion that was a real inspiration for Constance Gennari.
These vintage inspirations are the starting point for all our creations. For the Gioia table lamp, we have drawn upon the aesthetics of the ’70s, which brought the generosity of rounded shapes into the spotlight. Consequently, the base of our model has rounded corners with the appearance of flower petals, to which the square edges of the fabric lampshade are added.
An iroko finish with soothing aesthetics
Softness, and uncompromising calm. Through the use of ash wood with an iroko finish, we celebrate our desire for a return to nature! Featured in our Carlotta coffee table, as well as in our Carlotta side table, this warm and radiant wood gives our Gioia table lamp a reassuring aura. Full of light.
It has a natural side, using materials for the materials themselves, and is polished by human hands. Like a creation that has come fresh from the workshop, our Gioia light celebrates the time we increasingly want to spend wisely and one of our inmost desires: wellness. Especially at home, your refuge far from the world's deafening tumult.
One table lamp, a thousand possibilities
Wherever it goes, the Gioia becomes essential. Transform it into a light for your bedroom by placing it on your bedside table or on a pile of handsome books at the foot of your bed. Its diffuse light will create a soothing halo to help you or your child sleep. A designer light for your child will start their education in aesthetics.
The Gioia light adapts to your design scheme easily as it is available in different plain colourways or in the iroko version. Move it from room to room as often as you like. It looks amazing on a mantelpiece, by the side of the sofa or on a coffee table. The possibilities are infinite.
