The new U. lamp by Catellani & Smith presents itself in its purest, most authentic form to all those who observe it.

U. comes in four different models, two floor versions,

U. F Up and U. F Flex, and two wall versions, U. W Flex and U. W, all available with black or white finishes and with low voltage COB LED light source.

U. F Up is a floor lamp with simple, almost minimal lines. The semi-cylindrical screen that hosts the light source is covered with gold coloured leaf inside. And here is where something magical happens: the silhouette of a dancer appears in the centre of the "U" that gives the lamp its shape and its name. The steel silhouette is fitted with a magnet at the bottom and can be positioned anywhere on the metal plate in the screen. 

The floor lamp in the line is called U. F Flex and it too features a slightly smaller screen than that of the Up lamp. The distinguishing feature of this version is the directional brass flex and the 350° rotating screen, which enables the light to be pointed wherever it is required.

The U. W Flex wall lamp is also characterised by the flex located at the top of a rectangular base, and by the distinctive U that holds the COB LED light source, creating a bright glow. Finally, the other wall version, the

U. W, sits on a circular base and features a joint that enables the semi-cylindrical screen to rotate, designing a beam of light that diffuses on the wall.
