1970s Pala Desk Lamp by D. C. Arnoldi for Luci Illuminazione D'interni of Italy

About the Item

This adjustable desk lamp was designed by D. C. Arnoldi for Italian lighting company Luci illuminaznione d'interni, circa 1970. The company was founded in 1966 and quickly became known for their original and innovative designs of modern lighting. Luci has an impressive list of Italian designs who have worked for the company. In 1989, the company renamed itself LuciItalia and continued its identity as a producer of high quality and decorative modern design lighting. Here we have an example of an earlier Luci piece form the 1970s. It features an exterior chocolate brown enamel shade and screw on table mount. The interior of the shade is off white enamel and has a chrome socket cover over the standard socket. Underneath and inside the shade is stamped the company name "LUCI illumination d'interns", the model name "Pala mod 490" and "Designer: D C Arnold, Made in Italy." The brown enamel knob tightens the clamp onto a table or desk top as well as allows for direction change for the chrome arm. By sliding the top shade off of the arm one may re-attach it at a different angle or direction when sliding it back on. Similarly, the chrome arm may be removed from the clamp base and re-attached at a different angle like the shade with light. Approximate dimensions are 20.5" wide, 27.5" high and 6" deep. Dimensions will vary according to how one attaches the shade and angle of chrome arm. Requires on standard bulb. Located at The Showplace Antique + Design Center, 40 West 25th Street, NYC, NY 10010.
