Cirene is a lamp designed in 1965, obtained by "superimposing portions of a sphere", and comes in three different models: a pendant, ceiling-mounted or floor lamp for outdoor (Cirene Giardino) use. The pendant lamp is made of chrome-plated brass and translucid plexiglass, while the hanging version is made of white lacquered aluminium with a plexiglass diffuser.
The garden version is a floor lamp in white lacquered aluminium and iron with an opaline plexiglass diffuser mounted with a round fluorescent bulb and, thanks to the adjustability of the length of the floor support (100 cm or 220 cm), it can produce two different lighting effects: a more diffused light to light the path and, by lowering the support, an oblique light to light the greenery.
