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.

Questions & Answers
Kartell Bourgie Table Lamp
Makes a great statement!
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!

I purchased two of these lamps and I have to tell you that are spectacular! Just absolutely stunning! The pictures don't do them justice at all. The only concern I had with the lamps is that one of the halogen bulbs that it came with went out as soon as I put it in. I have searched high and low for the same bulb and can't find them anywhere. The feature description says I can just use a 40W candelabra bulb, so that's what I'm going to try. It didn't sound to me like it had to be halogen or be exactly what came with the lamp. If this doesn't work then I'm going to try to get ahold of the manufacturer in Italy.
