About the Designer
Vico Magistretti Italy (1920 - 2006)
Vico Magistretti began designing at the end of the 40s, but spent most of the 50s involved in architecture. He then returned to design (by far the majority being furniture) at the end of the 50s and has continued since then. He was educated in a time of architectural rationalism and so was taught to think logically, a lot of importance being placed on using architecture to solve social problems. In particular; the use of pre-fabrication was advocated. He was always more involved in industrial design for mass production than in one off pieces, but unlike some similar products, he designed his furniture to last. This all leads to his designs tending to be simple but effective solutions to a problem. However, he kept them quite informal by adding a bit of fun; perhaps this was a natural reaction against the austerity of wartime conditions. Although this is all true, he managed to make his designs innovative and stylish with elegant lines and quality finishes. Magistretti remained consistent in his approach to his work, but continued to react to current trends and issues and was always willing to test new materials and come up with new solutions. His designs have contributed significantly to the success of Italian design.
Beyond the definition, the human light is intelligent light. A light that knows it has to relate to people, accompanying them in their daily activities. That is why Artemide's attention today is concentrated on the concept of the context of life, understood as a specific microenvironment in which an event occurs where one or more persons are the protagonist, every context of life can be associated with different light contexts, or the different atmospheres of light characterized by the activities that, at various moments of the day, have us as protagonists, starting from these contexts and the lighting conditions that characterize them, Artemide proposes products capable of meeting people's multiple needs and offering the light performance characteristics most suited to each moment of life, it is light that is flexible and adaptable, which produces the optimum visual precision, and consumes the minimum environmental resources, it is Artemide light.

Cute but a bit small
Duy from Montreal, QC– Verified Buyer
This lamp is cute and somehow unique but it does not make a statement...it is quite small but i guess making it bigger would lose a bit of its charm. It is on the expensive side, hence the 4 star rating.
