You would have to trek to the Itria Valley to understand the nostalgic reference the Le Trulle medium pendant evokes for Italian designer Edmondo Testaguzza. A Trulli is a traditional stone hut with a conical limestone roof found in the Apulia region of Italy. The playful profile Testaguzza conjured up for this pendant, made of natural ceramic and wire, is his heartfelt nod to this building style’s epoch in the 1800s.

Born in Backnang, Germany, in 1964, Edmondo Testaguzza works from his eponymous design studio, which he founded in 1997. The firm’s projects include interior design, industrial design and product design. His talent creating lighting systems led to a fruitful collaboration with Karman, whose products Global Lighting distributes in the North American marketplace. The experimenter in shapes and forms is a passionate observer of the environment, bringing natural themes and an elemental aesthetic to his designs.
Among his awards, Testaguzza was honored at IFFT (the International Furniture Fair Tokyo) in 2000, for designing one of the best Italian products being exhibited at that event. His clients include a variety of Italian firms based in the Marche Region, including FBL and Karman. The Dharma pendant, which he initially envisioned while imagining several frames in an embrace, is a fixture of Testaguzza’s that Global Lighting offers in the United States and Canada.
