Available in a choice of refined materials and finishes including copper, gold, wood, polished aluminium or matt white varnish. > Serena is a light that wants to fit in. Neither brash nor imposing, it is domestic by nature. It is lightweight and plays with the diffusers, reflecting or allowing the light to pass through.It is pure, calm, dry, light and flexible.It is inspired by the natural world, by leaves of different shapes and colours.— Patricia Urquiola
