The ANA Pendant is designed by Barba Corsini in collaboration with Joaquim Ruiz Millet. The ANA Pendant is an extension to the original PD2 Floor Lamp which Corsini designed for La Pedrera in 1955, and shares the same characteristic look and iconic status. The inspiration for the lampshade is found in the form of the cylindrical chimneys of La Pedrera. The ANA Pendant has a powerful simple character, which also is an apt description of Corsini's personal design style, and fits well into any contemporary home.
Barba Corsini was in 1955 assigned to remodel the attics of the prominent Antoni Gaudí landmark La Pedrera. Used as a laundry room and a storage area, Corsini transformed the space into 13 modern apartments. To complete the architectural experience, Corsini specifically designed and decorated the apartments with his own designs, inspired by the characteristic appearance of the building.
In 1991, it was decided that the loft space of La Pedrera should be restored according to the original conception of Gaudí. The interior made by Corsini was torn down and most of it thrown away. During the renovation the architect and gallerist, Joaquim Ruiz Millet, discovered the PD2 Floor Lamp and saved it from being thrown in the trash. Ruiz Millet started to collaborate with Corsini and his designs, and recreated the original pieces, specifically in order to help rescuing his work, make it more known and available for the public.

Bestlite has been in continuous production since 1930. The Bestlite Floor Lamp was designed by Robert Dudley Best who was highly influenced by the Bauhaus. In the past 80 years, people appreciated the lamps and it decorates many homes, hotels and restaurants worldwide. Loved by architects, designers and design aficionados throughout its 80-year history, today, Bestlite enjoys global iconic status.Gubi was founded in 1967 by Jacob and Sebastian's parents, Gubi and Lisbeth Olsen. They initially focused on producing Olsen's furniture designs and selling textiles to the retail sector. Eager to make their own mark, the sons opened a concept store and introduced fashion into the equation. In fact, they were amongst the first to import Prada and Helmut Lang to Denmark, returning their focus back to the family business in 2001.
Since then, they have transposed the original creative vision into a contemporary context, putting Gubi on the map as a global player on the design scene. In an ever-changing international landscape, it takes an enormous amount of drive and determination to keep chasing icons. It's that type of endless energy, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit which has catapulted Gubi into an iconic status all its own.
