Ferrucio Laviani is part of a generation of young Italian designers who came to prominence in the early 90's when the Memphis movement made its mark on international design. Born in 1960, Laviani studied both architecture and design in Milan, graduating with a degree in architecture in 1986. Soon thereafter, he took part in the "12 Newcomers" Memphis collection in 1986 and the "Living on Earth" Memphis collection in 1987, launching his career with ties to the colorful and idiosyncratic design movement. Laviani went on to design whimsical, colorful furniture and objects that remind us of their exuberant and expressive mission. Laviani's Orbital Lamp of 1991, perhaps his best known design, used color-saturated biomorphic shapes for the glass shades, and an angular, tapering metal base, bringing to mind the organic emphasis and optimism of the '50s, while his Max table combines multi-use practicality with his signature curvilinear forms. Ferruccio Laviani marks the transition between his generation and those before him through his collaborations with his elders and mentors. He's worked with Kartell, Foscarini, Achille Castiglioni, and Ettore Sottsass. Along with his talented colleagues, Laviani exemplifies the best of Italian design, present and future.

Beautiful lamp. I love the fact that I can adjust this lamp into 3 different heights with the attachments. The adjustable light dimmer is a great asset which truly puts this lamp ahead of the class when it comes to a modern eclectic look. This lamp is suitable in the bedroom, living room or foyer. The footprint is a bit large, so be wary if you have a small space.

There is not a single party that we have had where someone did not complement me on our gorgeous Bourgie lamps. We have two in our family room that has both modern and traditional decor and they look fantastic. The only negative is finding a replacement fuse for the dimmer. I have contacted Kartell and they cannot even recommend a place in the US. For that, I knock it down by a star (probably should knock of 2 stars). Beautiful lamp.

Jannick from Hoboken, NJ– Verified Buyer
I absolutely love this Kartell lamp! Purchased 2 to use on nightstands in my bedroom. The decor in the room is a mix of modern and vintage, and these lamps fit in perfectly. They are so versatile, that you'll be able to mix them into most decor. I love the dimmer, and the fact that the switch lights up, so you can always find it in the dark. I've had them now for 2 years, and have had no issues - I haven't even had to replace a light bulb yet!
