H2O Pendant PD3 by Gubi
Design Corsini & Millet, 1955
The H2O Pendant is designed by Barba Corsini in collaboration with Joaquim Ruiz Millet as an evolution of the original PD2 Floor Lamp. Taking the perforations that feature on the original design as inspiration for the H2O Pendant, it exudes a warm atmospheric light whether it is for a dining room, living room or bedroom.
Barba Corsini was in 1955 assigned to remodel the attics of the prominent Antoni Gaudí landmark La Pedrera. Used as a laundry room and a storage area, Corsini transformed the space into 13 modern apartments. To complete the architectural experience, Corsini specifically designed and decorated the apartments with his own designs, inspired by the characteristic appearance of the building.
In 1991, it was decided that the loft space of La Pedrera should be restored according to the original conception of Gaudí. The interior made by Corsini was torn down and most of it thrown away. During the renovation the architect and gallerist, Joaquim Ruiz Millet, discovered the PD2 Floor Lamp and saved it from being thrown in the trash. Ruiz Millet started to collaborate with Corsini and his designs, and recreated the original pieces, specifically in order to help rescuing his work, make it more known and available for the public.
