Competition: win a Glo table lamp by Penta Light

Competition: win a Glo table lamp by Penta Light

For our latest competition, we’ve teamed up with Design London to offer readers the chance to win a Glo table lamp by Penta Light.

Formerly known as 100% Design, Design London is a design show that will be held in the city from 22 to 25 September 2021, featuring a curated selection of leading design brands including Penta Light. Visitors can sign up to Design London on the event website.

In celebration of the upcoming event, Penta Light is giving away one of its Glo table lamps to a Dezeen reader.

Created by architect Carlo Colombo for the Italian brand, the Glo table lamp is characterised by its glass sphere, designed to enhance light within a room.

“It’s an icon of the Penta collection, a glass sphere enhancing the glare of light in a game of reflections back and forth between the lamp and space around it,” said the brand.

The lamps are made from chromed metal and borosilicate – a type of glass formed of silica and boron trioxide, known for being more highly resistant to thermal shock than common glass.

They come complete with shades in transparent or rose gold glass, as well as gold, silver, black, blue, green, violet, or a mirrored glass called 4ever. All have a sandblasted interior.

The table version comes in three different sizes – large (38 by 68 centimetres) medium (25 by 42 centimetres) and mini (13 by 28 centimetres).

One winner will receive a medium-sized Glo lamp, with a choice of gold, rose gold or black finishes.

Also available in the Glo collection are the floor, wall and suspension lamps, all designed by architect Colombo. As well as designing for Penta, Colombo’s studio works on design, interiors and architecture projects all over the world.

Other brands he has collaborated with include Elie Saab, Cartier, Bentley Home, Bugatti Home, and more.

Established in 1975 in Cabiate, Italy, Penta started by selling essential homeware before branching into lighting, which it decided to specialise in shortly after.

Today, Penta produces lighting for homes as well as hotels, restaurants, ships and other public spaces. It prides its designs on their “quality, elegance, functionality and materials,” according to the brand.

Design London takes place from 22 to 25 September 2021. See Dezeen Events Guide for an up-to-date list of architecture and design events taking place around the world.


Competition closes 17 September 2021. Terms and conditions apply. One winner will be selected at random and notified by email.
