Design 1965, Italy
The Eclisse table lamp, designed by Vico Magistretti for Artemide, won the Compasso d'Oro in 1967 and is an Italian design classic.
The lamp consists of simple shapes and was, as Magistretti himself emphasised, inspired by lanterns used by miners and thieves.
In 1963, while travelling on the Milan Metro, he got the idea for this lamp while thinking about the lantern used by Jean Aljean, the main character in Victor Hugo's Les Miserables.
The lamp consists of three half spheres. The base, the outer shade and the inner rotatable shade can be used to regulate the light intensity and thus create a lunar eclipse. This version also has a "collar" with which the inner sphere can be rotated.
Height: 18 cm
Width: 12 cm
Marked on the base: Studio Artemide Milano - Modello Eclisse - design Vico Magistretti.
The lamp is in perfect condition, no scratches, no dents.
