Description

Atollo 235 table lamp amazes with a beautiful opaline blown Murano glass diffuser and its height reaching to 70 cm. The smoothly glowing appearance is perfected with a separately adjustable lamp located inside the base cylinder. Designed by Vico Magistretti in 1977 for the Italian lighting company Oluce, the Atollo lamp has been said to completely revolutionize our image of a classic table lamp. Combining geometrical shapes of cylinder, cone and hemisphere, Atollo is a lamp that is extremely refined and bold at the same time, and it has become an icon of modern Italian design. Atollo won the 1979 Compasso d’Oro design award and it belongs to permanent collections of many significant art museums.

Vico Magistretti

The Italian designer Vico Magistretti (1920-2006) had a long career as an architect and furniture designer. Magistretti started studying architecture in Milano in 1939, but had to escape to Switzerland in 1943. In Switzerland he met Ernesto Nathan Rogers, who became Magistretti’s maestro. 

Returning to Milan in 1945 he finished his studies and started working for the architect Paolo Chessa. In the beginning of his career Magistretti worked as an urban planner and started designing furniture and lamps in the 1950s. Many of the objects he designed became museum pieces. During his long and fruitful career he also won several awards like two Compasso D’Oro awards.
