This handsome Italian mid century modern desk lamp with swing arm design, would be perfect for the modern home or office. The striking design and shape of the chrome lamp arm is emphasized even more by the beautiful frosted opaque glass shade topped in chrome. The middle of the chrome arm has a swivel coupling that allows the lamp shade to pivot 180 degrees. Also the whole chrome arm itself, swivels completely around on the heavy cast metal base.
Its unique and sculptural form are reminiscent of a design made in 1956 by Clay Michie for Knoll. Unfortunately we have not been able to attribute or confirm a designer or maker of this unique lamp. Who ever made it, did an amazing job. The hardware and the solid cast metal base with textured finish are a testament to quality and design.
The lamp is all original including the European wiring. The bulbs are standard US chandelier bulbs using European socket inserts. The plug cord and switch have been replaced for use in the US.
