Santa Fe Ceramic Hanging Lamp by Matteo Thun for Memphis

About

Designed for the 1983 Memphis collection. This example from 2015-2016 stock. Thun per Memphis printed on top of lampshade. Memphis authentication sticker on top of ceiling cover. Comes in original box with Certificate of Authenticity from Memphis. Requires a standard incandescent bulb - not included. Matteo Thun studied architecture in Florence and went to on to teach and work with a group of students making limited edition ceramics. In 1978, he met Ettore Sottsass in Milan and worked for his firm, Sottsass Associati, until he opened his own studio in 1984. He was a founding member of the Memphis Group through 1984, often referred to as the aristocratic Austrian architect, as the northern Italian city of Blozano he was born in, was once a part of Austria. His work for Memphis set the tone for New Design in ceramics, employing zagged edges as in his 1982 Titicaca Vase, or the ring-shaped teapot on an egg shaped based called Chad, or the ceramic hanging lamps series including Santa Fe with red lightning bolts and Santa Monica with silvered details for the 1983 Memphis collection.
