The Seletti Monkey LED Sitting Lamp grasps a bright torch for comfort and survival, sitting comfortably on the edge of table tops as a friendly curiosity. Composed entirely of resin, the whiteness of the primate has the statuesque quality of a wax sculpture, as if the creature was once very much alive and is now an exhibit in a natural history museum. The light source is hardly primitive—the socket includes a warm LED bulb, illuminating an allegory of innovation to the primal nature of the animal.
Founded in 1964 as an importer of home furnishings, Seletti has since evolved into a moving force in the original designs of such products. The company works with a range of designers in Italy and worldwide to create furniture, lighting and furnishings for the kitchen, table and office that are both useful and unexpected. As it has since the beginning, Seletti is based in Cicognara, Italy.
