Ex-Display Lightyears Caravaggio P3 Gloss White

Caravaggio was an Italian Baroque artist famous for his way with light. It could be said that his medium was light and not paint, he painted in brilliance and shadow, in what was seen and what was hidden. It could be argued that naming a light after one of the greatest painters that has ever lived is something of a conceit, especially one renowned for playing with light itself. But if any light can live up to the name it is the Caravaggio. With the Caravaggio P3 it is all about contrast, about the light that falls from the base and the light that is cast from the top. How the lamp body can be thrown into shadow, its sometimes stark silhouette and how the light’s form is revealed in the daytime with its feminine shade and masculine suspension rods. It is this double nature that the designer Celine Manz was trying to capture, the perpetual struggle of two great forces to find balance.

Dimensions: P3 diameter 40cm. H 51cm.

The design of a light should never shine brighter than the light itself. This is the message from the Danish designer, Cecilie Manz. This positive conviction stems from her upbringing in a creative environment of artists and craftsmen. Her interest in design and materials brought her to Danmarks Designskole, where she studied a curriculum of furniture and implements. Her determination to explore function and ability to think conceptually was sharpened further during a period of study in Helsinki. Today in her own design studio, Cecilie Manz strives to combine conceptualism with the Danish penchant for durable materials and sublime finish. An innovative fire and sense of detail express themselves in Cecilie Manz's lighting designs. As she puts it, new products should either be innovative and rejuvenating or offer improvement. Thus, she has done her utmost to develop designs that do not steal attention from the light, but ensure that function always prevails.


Lightyears, part of the Fritz Hansen Group, is a Danish light company that takes great pride in creating lighting products that combine both tradition and renewal. The core ambition of the company lies in the fusion of the young and the established. Lightyears embraces the curiosity and boldness of the up-and-coming generation, but equally they respect the skill and the trained eye of the older more experienced designers. This collaboration produces modern interpretations of established lighting products and it is Lightyears intention that these new incarnations speak for themselves on how and where to use contemporary illumination. The collection is functional, progressive, timeless and always represents good value for money. Lightyears cooperate with several of Danish design's most innovative and recognised designers like Jørn Utzon, Salto & Sigsgaard, Cecilie Manz, Morten Voss, Mads Odgaard as well as the Japanese designer Hidenori Kuge and the Danish/Italian design duo GamFratesi.
