Description

Fabulous table lamps with Italian marble bases and plastic shade . These table lamps were designed by the legendary Italian designer Vico Magestretti and manufactured in the 1970s. If you’ve not come across these before, note the ‘oversized’ dimensions of the shades. These lamps bring more than just light to a space – they will be eye-catching focal points in any room in which they are placed.

Founded in 1945 by Giuseppe Ostuni, Oluce is the oldest Italian design company still operating in the lighting world. Over the years, Oluce has succeeded in building a collection consisting of products that have transcended fashion to become Italian design icons.

The 1970s saw the beginning of a new and highly important era for Oluce, which coincided with the transfer of ownership from Giuseppe Ostuni to the Verderi family, and was marked by the influential figure of one of the great Italian design masters: Vico Magistretti.

For many years, Magistretti would be the company’s art director and leading designer, leaving his unmistakable mark and a legacy of worldwide recognition. Kuta, Lester, Nara, Idomeneo, Pascal, Dim, Sonora, Snow and Atollo became names that would instantly call to mind their corresponding products.

The lamps are in very nice condition but, although not particularly noticeable, there is a little flaking to the black paint on the top of each dome (see photos).
