The Cortina Story

In conceiving of Cortina, designer Pablo Pardo sought to create a light that would assert its presence but seamlessly complement a variety of surroundings. What he built is a stoic, sculptural luminaire that emits a seductive light through its transparent and diffused surfaces. Cortina’s monolithic form factor creates a noble light that mimics its architectural surroundings. Fluidly dimmable, the piece is comprised of a clear acrylic shade and a translucent fabric diffuser to shield the upward-facing light source. Cortina is available in heights ranging from 24” to 72”.

Essential LightCortina's seductive light echoes its
architectural surroundings. Its stoic, clear
acrylic shade features a sensual translucent
mesh fabric diffusor to shield its full-range
dimming light source. Cortina allows you to
set any mood depending on the moment.
Family RangeAvailable in multiple table and floor models
ranging from 24"-72", the Cortina family can
be displayed in multiples for maximum effect.
