"Poliedra" Lamp by Felice Ragazzo

About

The "Poliedra" lamp, designed by Felice Ragazzo in 1969 for D.H. Guzzini, and exhibited in 1970 at Milan's Eurodomus 3 show, was an audacious modular lighting system in which the user was ultimately responsible for the final stage of the design process. The kit of parts would allow construction of an endlessly variable and rather futuristic-looking truss-based structure (a spaceframe) out of various structural components. The lights themselves were also snap-in modules that could be positioned in the spaceframe however the user chose. This example -- a single six-sided polyhedron -- is a lone module, with two lights, which serves as an unusual table lamp, as well as an artifact from an extremely fertile period of Italian design. The piece can also be hung from the ceiling as a pendant lamp. Literature: FORME, number 29, 1970; LIGHT: Lamps 1968-73, Fulvio & Napoleone Ferrari, 2002
