About

Table lamp designed by Vico Magistretti in 1977 Manufactured by Oluce, Italy. Designed in 1977 by Vico Magistretti, over the years, Atollo has become the archetype of the table lamp, winning the Compasso d’Oro in 1979 and completely revolutionizing the way we imagine the classic bedside lamp. The geometric shapes that compose it – cylinder, cone and hemisphere – have resulted in a product that is decorative and essential at the same time, disconnected from the historical period and the fashions of the moment, and one that has now fully become one of the icons of Italian design. Materials and color: Metal black Dimensions: D 25 cm x W 25 cm x H 35 cm Technical information: 2 x max 40 W (E14) Production delay: 8 weeks. Founded in 1945, Oluce is the oldest Italian design company in the lighting sector still in operation today. Oluce lighting’s design aesthetic is crisp, linear, and decorative. A subtle, intellectual beauty that over the years has led the company to produce some of the more recognizable and admired iconic lighting in the world. Oluce, already participating at the 9th Triennale in Milan, throughout its long history, has received numerous acknowledgements including two Golden Compass awards, two Design Awards and the Gold Medal at the 13th Triennale in Milan. Its lamps appear in the most important permanent design collections worldwide. Oluce’s expertise reveals its unparalleled manufacturing excellence which transforms into objects an untiring technological research into the potential of light. Each lamp is a milestone along this journey. Over time, from unusual materials, original designs and new lighting sources ensued revolutionary iconic designs by Tito Agnoli, Joe Colombo, Marco Zanuso, Ostuni e Forti, and Vico Magistretti, who since the 1950s, have been rewriting the history of lighting. Recent collections reaffirm Oluce design and decorative approach, expressed through the signs by Italian and international designers such as Angeletti & Ruzza, Francesco Rota, Nendo, Victor Vasilev, Nicola Gallizia, Christophe Pillet, Mist-o and David Lopez Quincoces.

About the Design

Atollo Table Lamp

Designed by Vico Magistretti
For such a revered piece of lighting design, the Atollo lamp is impressively simple, comprising just three forms: a cylinder, a cone and a dome, stacked so neatly atop one another that the dome appears to hover above the fixture on its own. This sculptural table lamp, an outwardly geometric tour de force from postwar Italy that produces warm diffused light, was created by prolific industrial designer and architect Vico Magistretti (1920–2006). Born in Milan to a family of architects — both his father and grandfather worked in the profession — Magistretti studied architecture in both his hometown at the Polytechnic University of Milan and at the Champ Universitaire Italien in Lausanne, Switzerland, as a young man during World War II. In Switzerland, he met architect Ernesto Nathan Rogers, who served as his mentor and role model. The younger designer was deeply moved by Rogers’s humanist ideals to revitalize a postwar Italy: The two would later work together on the urban planning of a number of working-class neighborhoods in Milan with Rogers’s firm BBPR. Magistretti also participated in the creation of QT8, an experimental neighborhood in Milan conceived at the Milan Triennial, for which he designed a church. After he graduated from Polytechnic in 1945, Magistretti worked at his father’s practice, and it wasn’t until the 1950s that he recognized his interest in furniture design. (He would return to architecture and urban design projects in the ’80s and ’90s.) He collaborated with Cesare Cassina for more than 30 years, designing for Cassina’s eponymous firm the successful Carimate chair and the Maralunga sofa as well as Cassina’s villas in the commune of Carimate. Magistretti also found a successful partner in Artemide, for whom he designed the Eclisse lamp, which won the 1967 Compasso d’Oro. In 1979, Magistretti would win another Compasso d’Oro award for his Atollo table lamp, perhaps his most enduring work. The decorative and versatile Atollo — which was available in three sizes, in milky white opal glass as well as aluminum — was designed in 1977 and produced by Oluce, where it is also manufactured today and offered in multiple finishes. The Atollo table lamp is held in museums such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York and Die Neue Sammlung in Munich.
