SOLD Table Lamp Eclisse by Vico Magistretti
for Artemide, 1960s
The Eclisse is an iconic lamp designed by Vico Magistretti in 1965, who won the Compasso d’Oro Award in 1967 and became ambassador of Italian design worldwide. The Eclisse is an avant-garde balance between form and function, design and utility. The concept’s foundation lies in its functionality of adjusting the intensity of light through its rotating inner shade that “eclipses” the light source. In fact, with a fixed outer shell and a moveable inner shell the lamp can provide direct or diffuse light. Painted metal body in red and white. Eclisse is part of the permanent collection of the most important design Museums, including the MoMa in New York and the Triennale Design Museum in Milan.
