$4,600

About

Oscar Torlasco (1934-2004) designed this double headed floor lamp for Lumen Società Anonima apparecchi di illuminazione razionale, via verdi 7, Milano. Slanted and sinewy brass stem on a distinctively cut round 13 inch diameter white marble base with two multi-positional perforated enameled aluminum cone shades. Push on-off switch on top of each cone. Each cone takes a single standard size Edison screw lightbulb up to 75 watts each. Rewired for USA. Literature- L’Arredamento Moderno Quinta Serie , 1955, Aloi, no.225 for a similar example. Lumen S.A. was founded in 1936 by 23 year old Gino Sarfatti along with partners Aldo Valcarenghi and Dino Mondolfi. Sarfatti would leave less than three years later to form Arteluce. Lumen di Milano went on for another twenty years and produced some of the most beautiful and skillfully crafted lamps of the period with designers such as Torlasco and Gio Ponti. At least one design was licensed to Lightolier in the USA.
