About the Designer
Ferruccio Laviani Ferruccio Laviani  

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.

The classic image of the bedside lamp has been revisited by Kartell technology and transformed into an piece of contemporary art. The shape comes from the joining of two symmetrical parts: two flat, rectangular and two-dimensional plates which each assume the shape and volume of a half-lamp. The internal pleating of the lampshade embellishes the item, creating a play of light when turned on.

Kartell Take 30" H Table Lamp with Empire Shade


Gorgeous, Minimalist, Modern

 from Austin, TX– Verified Buyer

Many people would balk at the idea of spending $140 for what is essentially a small, plastic accent lamp. But this iconic piece, by world renowned plastics maker, Kartell, is worth every penny. It's sleek, unique and provides just the right amount of filtered light. Adds a nice modern touch to any space.

Modern, functional and fun!

 from Pittsburgh, PA– Verified Buyer

The Take Lamp in Smoke was exactly what my home office needed. It reflects enough light to be useful, but the design is what really makes this lamp special. I love the two different profiles, the colors to choose from are great and it's so easy to keep clean! Just dust it off and it's back to looking new!

Take Table Lamp

 from Fort Washington, MD– Verified Buyer

This lamp is cute and the right size. I purchased it to provide a little more lighting on my kitchen counter. However, the lighting is dimmer than I expected, perhaps because the one I purchased is black. It would be much nicer if the lighting from it was a little brighter. Otherwise, it is exactly what I needed.

You light up my life!

 from New York, NY– Verified Buyer

Love the light. Goes with anything in clear, small enough to fit just about anyplace, but big enough to put out a good amount of light. Makes a great holiday gift!

 from Sunrise, FL– Verified Buyer

This little lamp emits a gorgeous shimmer of light giving interest and texture to the wall behind it. It's not a good reading lamp, but it lights up a room and is flat out gorgeous!

Nice table lamp

This is a nice table lamp. It has a very artistic look to it and the whole order with everything I ordered worked out great and I got the products quickly.

We knew it didn't have a dimmer - when we purchased - but that would be my only complaint with the lamp - as it's a bit bright.

Lightweight lamp

 from Elkins Park, PA– Verified Buyer

This lamp is lucite so it doesn't weigh much at all, and the attached cord and switch are too heavy for such a lightweight lamp. Although there's a choice of 2 different looks, the lamp won't stay in place unless the cord is close to (or hanging off) the end of a table/shelf, and that will determine the look you end up with.

Aside from that, the lamp is as described and works for what I have in mind.
