AFRICA is a designer lamp inspired by an experience of photographic reportage in African territories by the designer Daniele Gualeni. The lamp shape is in fact the silhouette of an African woman, dressed with a veil on her head and a cape around her shoulders, the light of the face of Africa's women becomes a source of inspiration for a lamp that reproduces the refinement of those light garments and the strength of those simple forms.


The designer lamp AFRICA by ILIDE is composed of two ceramic cones finely molded by hand and stacked one atop the other. The upper part of the piece, in addition to symbolizing the bright face of a woman, illuminates the entire body of the lamp, preventing it from being in shadow and from disappearing when the lamp is turned on (as is the case with the usual non-transparent conical lamps).

The lower and upper openings of AFRICA also create a spontaneous ventilation effect that allows the lamp to use bulbs of different powers without excessive overheating.


The AFRICA designer lamp is unique, simple and yet original, rich in meaning and inspiration, an object which, like the women who inspired it, is strong and able to adapt to any environment and in our case any architectural environment.

AFRICA easily fits into any environment whether classic or modern. A light source but also a high quality decorative piece that enhances and adds value to the beauty of a home. For spaces where it is necessary to fill a large area, as on a long table or in a corner, we suggest using 3 or 4 cascading lamps.


Alone or in combination with more elements, AFRICA is the ideal solution to illuminate kitchen counter tops, tables, lounge corners, but also as a lamp hovering beside the bed instead of a classic bedside lamp, the accurate design will confer class in any environment in which you place it.


The length of the steel cord is adjustable, for specific inquiries about the length of the cables we recommend filling in the information request form on the right. Compatible light bulb: 1 x max 100W E27, warm light suggested  (3000K or 4000K), not included.
