A next-generation oil lamp.
“It was named after an old fisherman from El Port de la Selva called Silvestre; tall, rugged and elegant. A bottle half-filled with light, or half-empty? Bottle in the half-light. A softly lit oil lamp.” – Jordi Garcés and Enric Sòria
The Sylvestrina lamp follows you around. Freed from the moorings of electric wires, now it lights up any conversation, including in its usual place, resting on a table. Its discreet circular base needs little surface area to house a rechargeable battery. Simply press the outer tube down to activate the switch, adjusting accordingly, to full or medium strength. Sylvestrina is secure in the subtle atmosphere of trust. Like the light of a good oil lamp.
Sylvestrina has won an iF Design Awards in the 2021 edition.
Santa & Cole is a small, independent and global editor of design products, with its roots in Belloch (Barcelona, Spain). We have been editing since 1985, when the company was first founded. By editing we mean preparing a work for the public domain, we mean adapting an item for everyone’s use.
What a book editor does with stories, we do with objects. More than eighty creators have contributed to a rich catalogue of furniture and lighting products originating in very different contexts, by renowned designers such as Antoni Arola, Miguel Milá, André Ricard and llmari Tapiovaara.
A cute and attentive to quality and detail, Santa & Cole outsources all of its industrial production to an extensive network of suppliers, mainly in Spain, but also in other countries such as Japan, where the washi paper for our Tekiò lamp is made. Our mission is to build, safeguard and disseminate knowledge through design objects. Objects whose quality is recognisable at the touch of a hand, and that enrich people’s lives, whether at home or in shared environments. Our philosophy is more modern than futurist and we are more intrigued by silence than by stridency.
Our focus is not the present market, but the future one; not Barcelona, but the world; not fashion, but history.
