Caliu Milano

Gemma Margalef Soldevila was born in Spain in Barcelona and​​ moved to Milan in 2003. In 2018, she created CALIU MILANO and devoted herself completely to creating her first collection of lampshades made using completely sustainable, recyclable materials and a handmade production with zero environmental impact. 

Caliu is a Catalan word for the warmth of a place where you feel comfortable. To make an atmosphere unique, you can choose to personalise lampshades by combining the shapes and hues of the yarns to match them with the furniture and style of your home.

Caliu is a Catalan word that refers to a special sensation of a place where you feel comfortable.


CALIU MILANO is committed to using reusable, biodegradable, recyclable and non-toxic materials. The lampshades are designed with the product's long life in mind, making it removable, repairable, and durable.
Production is efficient, reduces energy consumption in the production phases, and has a shallow environmental impact.

Materials: Iron for the frame of the lampshades. The recycling of ferrous metals offers significant advantages both from an ecological and economic point of view. Like all types of waste recycling, it reduces the environmental impact and counteracts pollution. Ferrous materials are 100% recyclable materials. They can be recycled countless times without losing their original properties and are by far the most recycled materials in the world.
Cotton lisle and wool for the surface of the lampshade. Cotton lisle is the most valuable of all types of cotton, thanks to a double treatment that makes it more shiny and silky. Wool is a natural, sustainable, biodegradable fibre. Both of these yarns are 100% recyclable.
