In 1972, Achille Castiglioni designed the timeless table lamp Lampadina for Flos.
Lampadina is a table lamp which provides direct and diffuse light. The base which is made of anodized aluminium serves to contain the excess power cord. The lamp-holder consists of bakelite and is painted in organ and purple colours. Thus, a matching of the switch is reached. The clear globe lamp (1x40W E 27 IAG) which is included in the delivery is partially sandblasted in order to diffuse the light.
The On/Off oscillating switch is inside the lamp-holder but it can be activated from the outside. The power cord has a length of 230 cm; Lampadina has a net weight of 0.3 kg.
