Vintage Italian "Serpente" Floorlamp by Elio Martinelli for Luce, 1965

$911.07

About

This Italian Floorlamp, named "Serpente" was designed by Elio Martinelli in 1965. It was part of the collection of the Italian company Martinelli Luce. Elio has set up various collections but the "Serpente"was one of his most succesfull designs. Elio Martinelli got a lot of inspiration from nature, which is also reflected in the design of the Serpente floorlamp. The techniques that Elio Martinelli used to create the shade and base were very progressive in 1965. The large shade is made of methyl acrylate, which diffuses the light nicely. The base of the floorlamp is made of metal and it is easily rotatable by means of a hinge and therefore very functional. This lamp is in very good condition and seen the black base produced in the seventies or early eighties.
