Pablo Pardo designed Cortina with the intention of creating a bold, monolithic light that would audaciously declare its existence while concurrently blending seamlessly with its surroundings. Available in heights from 24 inches to 72 inches, and fully dimmable across its range of light, Cortina shines a subtly seductive light through its transparent and translucent acrylic surfaces.
The Designer: Pablo Pardo
Pablo Pardo attributes his passion for design and craftsmanship to his upbringing in Venezuela, where he was raised by a family of engineers and artists. In 1993, Pardo founded Pablo Designs in San Francisco, basing his studio on a philosophy of beautiful, minimal, utilitarian lighting that nurtures the relationships between people and their environments.
