In 1968 this pendant lamp appeared in the Cerruti apartment produced by Piero Melotti of Milan while the American company Knoll would produce it from 1971 to 1976 under the NAME of Colleoni. Initially a table/floor (399) or ceiling lamp (450), it features a candelabra-shaped frame with four transparent or clear violet Murano blown spheres. The stem, arms and rings are all in chrome-plated steel. The original table/floor model was comprehensively only 110 cm high. A few years later, the uniquely floor model 379 was added to the collection with a more conventional height of 200 cm. The ceiling model featured a rigid 135 cm stem that was supplied in two fragments. In 1980 a wall model (150) was presented featuring a single sphere, together with a whole outdoor collection (160/350) with black-painted zinc-plated metal parts and, alternatively, glass or transparent polycarbonate spheres.
