Italian Table Lamp in the Manner of Castiglioni

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This fantastic Italian table lamp has characteristics similar to designs by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Gino Sarfatti, and other masters of Italian lighting from the late 1960s and early 1970s. It has a touch of Industrial Design with the steel construction and exposed hardware, but a sublime attention to detail including the crisply folded metal and the perforated heat/ bulb shield in the open space that defines the two halves. It is marked with the manufacturer’s label, but we have yet to identify either the designer or maker of this terrific lamp.
