'Pedrera' by Braba Corsini for Gubi

In 1955, the property company behind Gaudi’s famous building La Pedrera in Barcelona wanted to convert the attics, which were primarily used for storage, into flats. The company therefore contacted the Spanish architect Barba Corsini.
Corsini designed 13 individual flats, numbered 1-14 due to superstition. The assignment also entailed designing lamps and furniture to complete the overall architectural experience of the flats.
Corsini found his inspiration for the lamps’ cylindrical shape and holes in Gaudi’s chimneys, and achieved great international recognition for his architecture and design for La Pedrera.
