The Ronda table lamp, designed by Jorge Pensi, has a tailored midcentury modern sophistication thanks to its classic wood shade available in natural oak or wenge. The opal thermoplastic diffusers above and below soften the fluorescent light source, lending any spot a touch of romance.

Buenos Aires-born Jorge Pensi studied architecture in his home city, then moved to Barcelona and became a Spanish citizen in the mid-1970s, founding Berenguer, a design agency, with other professionals in the field. By1984, Pensi formed his own practice to specialize in designing furnishings and lighting, and quickly became known for his fluid chair designs. Within his lighting oeuvre, he has created a number of products for the Basque manufacturer B.lux, whose products we at Global Lighting distribute in North America.
Pensi’s cast-aluminum Toledo chair has garnered the designer a number of awards in Europe, including the First Award Selection from SIDI, Silver Delta Awards from the Assoziazione del Diesegno Industriale and a Design-Auswal 90 Award from the Stuttgart Design Center. In 1994, Pensi designed the exhibition Salon Internacionale de Diseno para el Habitat. His Orfilia chair for Thonet and Olympia lamp for B.lux have been synonymous with excellence in Spanish design since they came on the scene. Other B.lux contributions include the Bluebird and the Regina, which we are happy to make available in the U.S. and Canada. But we applaud all his timeless designs.
I am always attracted to pieces that take their inspiration from mid century design. It is my favorite era in design, but it rarely gets done right in a modern interpretation. Too many times the proportions are wrong, or the design styling overpowers the materials. The Ronda Table lamp gets it perfectly right. Its sophisticated design with its striking shade is the perfect accessory to complement a variety of settings, from retro or modern, to contemporary. Equally important with lighting is the actual light or glow that it emits, and this lamp delivers a nice soothing light that will make you want to leave the lights on.
