Description

Designed by Vico Magistretti for the Italian lighting company Artemide in 1967, the Eclisse lamp is a delightful combination of round shapes, simple surfaces and 1960s spirit. The soul of the lamp is its mechanical dimmer: a curved, rotating shutter makes it possible to control the direction and intensity of the light. By closing the shutter completely, the lamp creates a beautiful corona – the name Eclisse is Italian word for eclipse. The lamp was awarded with the 1967 Compasso d'Oro design award and it influenced the futuristic design of the 1970s. Made of lacquered steel, the Eclisse makes a characteristic table lamp for example in the bedroom or the office, and it can also be mounted to the wall.
