1972 Gruppo Arditi Set of 2 Table Steel Lamps, Movable Lights, by Sormani, Italy

$10,067.54per set

About the Item

This avantgarde lamps, duly certified by the Producer, were manufactured by Sormani Nucleo in 1972. The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston is displaying this masterpiece of the Space Age during the exhibition "Radical: Italian Design 1965–1985, The Dennis Freedman Collection February 14, 2020 — April 26, 2020". These lamps belong to the private collection of the manufacturer's family. They have a polished steel prismic base, with six Lucite lighting elements that can be moved in different positions on the cube by means of magnets. This was a patent of Duccio Trassinelli of Gruppo A.R.D.I.T.I. a radical group of designers that was forty years in advance in conceiving light as a sculptural element, just like it happens today with Oled technology. Luigi Sormani was eager to manufacture such an advanced concept in his Nucleo Division. The lamps are in very good conditions and bear the original Nucleo labels. Cable and internal electrical equipment have been restored. The lamps come with a "Certificate of Authenticity" issued on original vintage letterhead of the manufacturer.
