Designer: Pablo Pardo, 1993

The Piccola Story
As his very first product, Piccola is the original embodiment of Pablo Pardo’s “less is more” design philosophy. Created as a personal utility lamp, Piccola’s form is minimal, but also tactile, playful, and inviting of interaction. Supple Italian glove leather covers its soft, pliable base, which a user can tilt to any angle while its aluminum shade floats to remain level. It is this malleable base that maintains Piccola’s sensitivity to any position — sensitivity intended to make every articulation organic and personal. Piccola is part of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.

The Pablo Philosophy
The interpretation of light in its many forms, refined design solutions, and a distinctive timeless style; these are the underlying elements of Pablo's design mission. Pablo believes that the right light can transform any environment and is committed to creating lasting solutions that provide a lifetime of illumination.

Pablo’s designs have been propelled to the forefront of American contemporary lighting by an uncompromising devotion to simplicity and utility. By fusing the highest technical sensibilities with the most appropriate material palette, Pablo is able to create unique, timeless designs with the power to transform any environment. Pablo was founded in San Francisco in 1993 by Venezuelan-born industrial designer Pablo Pardo. Embracing a less-is-more ideology, Pablo frequently challenges traditional design metaphors, developing more practical solutions distilled down to their essence, form and light. A common thread links all of its creations, valuing permanence and sustainability, the disposable mindset so prevalent today. Its mission is to create designs that deepen the relationship between objects, their users, and their environments.

Over 25 Years of Design
With the creation of his first product in 1993, Pablo established a powerful and generative design philosophy. Since then, his core principles have informed the development of every light in the studio’s 25-year history. These products continue to move with culture while withstanding trends in design — and each one carries the underlying uniqueness that is distinctly “Pablo.”
