Uma Chandelier designed by Giancarlo Tintori

As the lighting division of Cassina, we’ve come to expect nothing less than the best from Nemo. With the vision of industrial designer Giancarlo Tintori behind them, they have set out to produce and create one of the most innovative and most striking recreations of the classic chandelier. Made of transparent metacrylate tubes and an inner steel structure, Tintori has designed a chandelier that utilizes modern production and materials but still manages to evoke the craft, the detail and the awe of its older, more traditional form.

The Uma stands tall at the crossroads of modernity and old world opulence.
