Mid Century Brass & Marble Angelo Lelii "Polifemo" Eye Floor Lamp Arredoluce '56

About the Item

Rare floor lamp mod. "12555 Polifemo" by Angelo Lelii for Arredoluce, Italy 1956 Polifemo Italian floor lamp, designed by Angelo Lelli, is a remarkable mid-century lighting fixture that exemplifies the iconic style of the designer. Angelo Lelli, known for his innovative approach to modern lighting design, created a piece that beautifully combines form and function. The Polifemo floor Lamp features a sleek and minimalistic design, characteristic of mid-century aesthetics, with clean lines and shapes. Its graceful silhouette showcases Lelii's mastery in blending simplicity and sophistication. The lamp's structure consists of a white marble base with a slender lacquered metal frame, elegantly supporting a large, globe-shaped shade made of brass, that can be moved to create different kinds of illumination and a cone shaped shade. What sets the Polifemo Lamp apart is its ability to create a captivating lighting experience. The shade, crafted from brass and a white and transparent plexiglass eye, emits a soft, diffused glow, casting a warm and inviting ambiance in any space while the upper cone shaped shade gives indirect light. Its timeless design effortlessly complements various interior styles, making it a versatile piece Angelo Lelli's Polifemo Lamp stands as a testament to his innovative design sensibilities, capturing the essence of mid-century aesthetics while remaining a timeless symbol of elegance and craftsmanship.
