J.A. Coderch 'Cister' Wood Suspension Lamp for Tunds.


Pablo Picasso declared one of J.A. Coderch's bentwood designs to be "the most wonderful pendant lamp of the world." This remarkably sculptural and organic piece existed for nearly half a century as a forgotten pencil sketch designed by the renowned architect. It was recently rediscovered and lovingly brought to life by Tunds, fabricated with high-quality materials, exacting craftsmanship and an abiding respect for the environment.

José Antonio Coderch (1913-1984) is considered one of the most valued architects in Postwar Spain. Often described as the architect of modernity, his works are still seen as vivid examples of contemporary architecture and his legacy includes hundreds of listed buildings all over Spain. Coderch gained significant recognition throughout his career, winning the architecture FAD awards in 1960 and 1972. He also became a member of Team X establishing friendships with other renowned international architects. His design creations such as the Disa lamp or the Polo chimney are also worth mentioning as well as his contributions as a photographer.


Tunds is the firm founded by Rafael Salvador, great-nephew of the J.A. Coderich. They are the exclusive manufacturer of the iconic DISA lamp sketched in pencil and recovered from the archives of the brilliant architect. TUNDS rediscovers Coderch’s lighting work following the explicit instructions of the master and with the classic, contemporary and honest presence which permeates each of Coderch’s designs.
