From the Latin verb meaning, “to distinguish or resolve,” Cerno is an American industrial design and manufacturing company that specializes in innovative lighting fixtures, like the Macto Table Lamp. This distinctive lamp celebrates the natural beauty of walnut wood, as is exemplified in the solid wood base. The substantial nature of the base is contrasted with the verticality and thinness of the brushed aluminum arm. The arm can be moved to redirect light as needed, and the energy efficient LED lamp produces consistent warm light. When not illuminated, the Macto functions as a work of sculpture, giving the lamp an unexpected artful slant.
