Table lamp Faro by Luigi Massoni for Guzzini, Italy 1970
[SOLD] The model name Faro means Lighthouse in Italian: it is quite a tall lamp that spreads the light 360 degrees like a beacon in your room. The acrylic shade has a wonderful deep orange colour and is adjustable in height.
In the early sixties Guzzini became a family business when five brothers joined the company. In 1962 Luigi Massoni was attracted to lead the design team. He worked for Guzzini until 1976. Luigi Massoni designed many iconic lamps during that period.
A Guzzini Faro table lamp was used as a prop on the desk of Miss Moneypenny in the 9th James Bond movie “The Man with the Golden Gun” from 1974 with Roger Moore.
The condition of this lamp is very good: only some light surface scratching on the chrome base. The acrylic shade in excellent condition and the base still retains the original lucite cord holder, which is often missing!
It holds two E14 bulbs. In full working order.
Diameter shade: 33cm
