The Chimera floor lamp was created in 1969 by Vico Magistretti for the italian lamp manufacturer Artemide. The elegant wavy shape makes Chimera a special light sculpture, its white body giving a warm indirect light.
The three illuminants inside of Chimera light up the luminous body in varied intensity. This way the wavy shape of the lamp is elegantly accentuated and underlines the sculptural character.
The transparent body of Artemides Chimera floor lamp is made of methacrylate. The wavy shape is achieved by bending the material while its hot during the manufacturing process. The base of the lamp is made of lacquered steel.
