Its name means, literally, “bulb,” and it’s easy to see why with one look at this playful 1972 Achille Castiglioni design for Flos. This unique table lamp provides direct and diffused light through a partly sandblasted clear globe. Its base is anodized aluminium and contains the excess power cord. There is an on/off switch on the lamp holder.
Inspiration behind the design: Artist Achille Castiglioni had a knack for offering a new perspective on the most humble of objects. Here, the result feels especially “meta” as he plays with the concept of light through a recreation of a light bulb.
