The table lamp Mezzachimera is the little brother of the Chimera floor lamp. The lamp was created in 1969 by Vico Magistretti for the Italian lamps manufacturer Artemide. The elegant wavy shape of the lamp is underlined by the transparent white of the lamp’s body.
Mezzachimera spreads indirect light. The three illuminants light up the whole body of the lamp from inside in different intensities. This way the wavy shape of the lamp is elegantly accentuated and underlines the sculptural character.
The transparent body of Artemide’s 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 steel.
