About

Italian Valigetta table light by Matteo Thun for Bieffeplast 1988, Memphis style This table light is inspired by the glass blocks used in construction also called vetrocemento. Here the glass block serves as diffuser which is housed in sturdy metal case. Matteo Thun was one of the closer collaborator of Ettore Sottsass in the "Memphis Design" project and this lamp has the typical strong personality that reflects the radical ideas on the design related to this movement. The lamp sits on 4 rubber feet an can be easily moved thanks to the chromed metal handle. Literature: The Complete Designers' Lights II, Krzentowski and Krzentowski, pg. 344.
