Description

Pipistrello Medium by Martinelli Luce is a whimsical table lamp created by the Italian designer Gae Aulenti in 1965. The name of the luminaire, Pipistrello, comes from the Italian word for bat, alluding to the playful and distinctive shape of the opal white shade that resembles the wings of a bat. The height of the lamp can be adjusted with the telescopic steel base.
