On LEDs and other small items

Pipe is Diesel's interpretation of the classic shaded lamp which becomes a protagonist in the space thanks to its large size and striking appearance.
A pure form inspired by visible tubing in factories, made more gentle by the use of fabric that covers it and transforms it into a lamp with soft, elegant shapes. The material is dirty linen; rough, bleached linen that expresses all of Diesel's know-how in the world of jeans. The lighter, more natural version creates an elegant luminous effect made all the more striking because of its unique fabric texture. The darker version features a fabric that is highlighted by a unique and very sophisticated decoration: Rubber Print. This fabric is a cylindrical silk-screen print using a rubber-effect ink. This creates a mixture of natural line and artificial rubber; two opposites that coexist to grant the model a strong personality. This luminous effect also has a very striking effect. The print, which is particularly dense at the base, spreads out, branch by branch towards the diffuser, giving off a warm light that diffuses delicately into the space.'
Pipe comes in three sizes – two floor versions and one table version. This lamp is ideal in both home and contract environments as well as in very large spaces. Pipe perfectly ties in with Diesel's style; a style with impact and a strong personality that dares to astonish with an original touch that is never out of place.
