Description

Daruma is a cheerful, simplistic and elegant table lamp designed by Sergio Asti for FontanaArte in 1968. Instead of a separate base and shade, Daruma consists of two glass domes attached together – white glass diffuses soft light throughout the entire light fixture. On show at New York’s MoMA, Daruma is a true gem of Italian lighting design of the 1960s, and its distinctive character makes a lovable addition to modern interiors as well.
