Italian Midcentury Light Sculpture / Table Lamp by Peduzzi-Riva for Artemide

$3,870

About

Important Italian Mid-Century Modern hand blown glass light sculpture called 'Vacuna' for use as floor lamp or table / desk lamp designed by Eleonore Peduzzi-Riva for Artemide, 1968. Vacuna was an innovative piece. It united light sculpture with a functional table lamp. It united the craft blown glass world of Murano with the manufacturing processes of Milan. Most importantly, the object itself was ephemeral, mysterious and beautiful with it's center or almost white glass and it's sides and back of progressively clear glass. The piece was highlighted with a silver tipped bulb which reflected light inward back on the glass. Peduzzi-Riva/ Artemide's "Vacuna" is rare and out of production. Exhibited: Italy: The New Domestic Landscape, Museum of Modern Art, 1972. Exhibited: "The Italian Light", Tom Thomas Gallery, New York, NY 2005 Literature: 'Italy: The New Domestic Landscape'; Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1972. page 64.
