The Chimera floor lamp was created in 1969 by Vico Magistretti for Italian lamp manufacturer Artemide. The elegant wavy shape makes Chimera a special light sculpture, its white body giving a warm indirect light.
The three bulbs inside Chimera light up the lamp body at various intensities. This way the wavy shape of the lamp is elegantly accentuated and underlines its sculptural character.
The transparent body of the Artemide Chimera floor lamp is made of methacrylate. The wavy shape is achieved by bending the material while it is still hot during the manufacturing process. The base of the lamp is made of lacquered metal.
