Table / wall lamp, model Eclisse by Vico Magistretti for Artemide, 1970
Vico Magistretti (1920 - 2006) was an Italian industrial designer, furniture designer, light designer and architect.
The Eclisse lamp is designed in 1965 while travelling in the Milan metro, on the back of a ticket. It went in production in 1966. You can find the Artemide Eclisse table lamp in the Artemide catalogue from 1973. It is also suitable for wall mounting.
Here we have a rarer version in silver grey with a white shutter.
In very good condition with virtually no signs of age bar a hardly noticeable darker spot (0,5mm, see photo). Cleaned, polished and checked. In full working order with still its original switch and Artemide plug!
