We do not require an adult signature for deliveries, but please note that the decision to leave your package without a signature is at the discretion of the delivery person. If you want an item left at your doorstep, the best thing to do is leave a note on your door asking the driver to leave your package with "No Signature Required."

Wood Crating Packaging Service

At Luminaire, larger or more fragile items, such as certain chairs and lighting, are protected in wood crating.

The wood crating at the top of the item's box will be secured with screws, instead of nails, to make access to the box and removal of the item easier.

Upon receiving a crated item, use a Phillips-head ("crosshead") screwdriver to unscrew and remove the wood from the top of the box. Then, simply open the box and pull the item out.

Packaging Information
Parentesi Lamp - Unique 1970 Suspension Light by Achille Castiglioni
Click to enlarge
Inspired by a sketch drawn by Pio Manzù and designed in tandem with Achille Castiglioni in 1970, the Parentesi Lamp fixture represents a culmination of the modernist manifesto: form following function, subtraction of ornamentation, and the composition of a product that draws beauty from its form. Produced by Flos, the lamp is made of stainless steel cable, mounted to the ceiling and held in tension by a black rubber covered lead counterweight that floats just above the ground. A stainless steel bracket sits on the cable and is adjustable in height. The light bulb is attached to the cable by way of a rubber joint. With his unique and witty design sensibility, Castiglioni developed a look which was both industrial and functional, celebrating the ingenuity of the mundane or everyday object, with the minimum of intervention.
  • Unique suspended lamp which provides direct or indirect light
  • Parentesi moves vertically via the sliding of a painted or nickel-plated shaped steel tube on a ceiling-to-floor steel cable
  • Cable length max 157"/400cm
  • Fixture head made of injection-molded black elastomer housing a switch
  • The Parentesi lamp is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York
