Exceptional floor lamp in Space Age style; consists of a solid round brass base, under which there is a cast iron weight to securely stabilize the lamp; attached to the base are three tubes, also made of brass, which, upward, branch out and curve at different heights; at their tops are placed three precious lenticular-shaped Murano glasses, an elegant, refined and unique ensemble. The lamp has a foot switch, with one button only the central light is turned on, with the other the remaining two; the arrangement of the lights allows excellent and uniform illumination of the room. The lamp is characterized by an elegant and minimalist design, made of excellent quality materials. It was created between 1960 and 1965 in a workshop in Monza (Lombardy, Italy). The artisans were inspired by the style of designer Goffredo Reggiani with the desire to devise an object with important dimensions while favoring the idea of practicality and linearity. They gave the lamp a timeless originality, following the fashion of those years; we know for certain that the architect Reggiani used Lombard craftsmen of recognized skill for the construction of his objects, who used very refined materials also because the objects were intended mainly for the apartments of the wealthy Milanese bourgeoisie, our lamp with its characteristics of quality, accuracy, and finish, was certainly made by those master craftsmen. The prolific and important Italian designer Goffredo Reggiani (1929-2004) founded the company in the city of Monza, Italy, in 1957; he designed most of the lamps himself, often using brass, chrome metal, and steel, giving his creations a Scandinavian look. Goffredo Reggiani's lamps feature clean lines and flowing curves, offering bright, diffused light. Reggiani's lamps have become cult objects for design enthusiasts and collectors, thanks to their aesthetic beauty and quality craftsmanship. The style of the lamp is the "Space Age", this aesthetic current was born at the dawn of the space age, commonly attributed to the launch of Sputnik in October 1957. Space age design captured society's optimism and confidence in technology in the 1950s and 1960s. The design exploded into a variety of styles and movements, making room for roundness, freedom of form and movement, lightness, and simplicity. The lamps of that period are characterized by essential volumes that recall geometric shapes that break definitively with the rationalist tradition. The materials are cold, shiny, and metallic. Our lamp with its simple and essential design hides an ingenious, innovative, and practical soul, ready to spread light according to our needs; it will easily fit into any context of the home because of its timeless elegance.
