Artemide Pausania LED Table Lamp in Black and Green by Ettore Sottsass

About

Artemide Pausania LED table lamp in black and green by Ettore Sottsass. The godfather of contemporary Italian design, Ettore Sottsass believed products should be as sensual as functional. Trained as an architect, Sottsass was a founding member of Memphis Design, a reaction against monotone formalism towards color and geometrical experimentation. Highly regarded through his iconic designs for the workplace with Olivetti, Sottsass had equal impact on private space with his “Superbox” closet, glass and ceramics. Originally designed in the 1980s era by Ettore Sottsass, Pausania has become a masterpiece of the design of the 20th century. It has become part of the permanent design collections of world renowned museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Steming from the visionary identity of Artemide, it reminds of a modern interpretation of the Classic banker’s lamp. Pausania’s technology has been reimagined to adapt to today’s standards of intelligent, eco-friendly, and energy efficient LED lighting. It is now featuring the latest Tunable White technology, allowing the user to select the right level of intensity as well as the right color of light he needs for each moment of life.

About Ettore Sottsass (Designer)

An architect, industrial designer, philosopher and provocateur, Ettore Sottsass led a revolution in the aesthetics and technology of modern design in the late 20th century.

     Sottsass was the oldest member of the Memphis Group — a design collective, formed in Milan in 1980, whose irreverent, spirited members included Alessandro Mendini, Michele de Lucchi, Michael Graves, and Shiro Kuramata. All had grown disillusioned by the staid, black-and-brown “corporatized” modernism that had become endemic in the 1970s. Memphis (the name stemmed from the title of a Bob Dylan song) countered with bold, brash, colorful, yet quirkily minimal designs for furniture, glassware, ceramics and metalwork. They mocked high-status by building furniture with inexpensive materials such as plastic laminates, decorated to resemble exotic finishes such as animal skins. Their work was both functional and — as intended — shocking.

     Sottsass's most-recognized designs appeared in the first Memphis collection, issued in 1981— notably the multihued, angular “Carlton” room divider and “Casablanca” bookcase. As pieces on these pages demonstrate, however, Sottsass is at his most imaginative and expressive in smaller, secondary furnishings such as lamps and chandeliers, and in table pieces and glassware that have playful and sculptural qualities.

     It was as an artist that Ettore Sottsass was celebrated in his life, in exhibitions at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, in 2006, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art a year later. Even then Sottsass’s work prompted critical debate. And for a man whose greatest pleasure was in astonishing, delighting and ruffling feathers, perhaps there was no greater accolade. That the work remains so revolutionary and bold — that it breaks with convention so sharply it will never be considered mainstream — is a testament to his genius.
