For a short time only, the Eclisse lamp is also available in a special red edition.
The Eclisse table lamp was created in 1967 by Vico Magistretti for Italian lamp manufacturer Artemide. The bulb sits in the head of the small sculpture and is concealed by a rotatable sphere that is exposed on one side, acting as a manual dimmer.
The partly exposed sphere on the Eclisse lamp can be rotated freely, exposing the lightbulb inside little by little. Depending on how much of the lightbulb is exposed by the sphere, light can be stronger or weaker, more direct or indirect: If the sphere covers the lightbulb completely, the light just shines on its sides.
If the lightbulb is completely visible, light shines directly into the room. Eclisse thus lets you manually dim light and creates a desired atmosphere for relaxing, reading or working. The Eclisse table lamp by Artemide is made of lacquered metal and is available in three colours.
The small lamp can also be attached to walls. The Eclisse table lamp by Artemide was awarded the Compasso d’Oro design prize in 1967, a long while ago.Today the small light can be found in many design museums the world over.
