Vico Magistretti’s Atollo is more than just a lamp. Atollo is an icon, a myth and one of the most famous symbols of Italian design of the 20th century. Since 1989 the Italian company Oluce manufactures Atollo in different sizes and variants.
Designed by Vico Magistretti in 1977, the small table lamp received the desired award Compasso D’oro only two years afterwards. As a consequence Atollo was included in continuous collections of leading design museums all around the world, being there still.
The combination of different geometric forms offers the characteristic look to Atollo and it makes it unmistakeable. The cylindrical body of the lamp rests on top of a spherical base out of aluminium being surrounded by a half-round lampshade.
Oluce manufactures Atollo out of mouth blown glass since 1989. Each table lamp is equipped with several illuminants, making it a fully value illuminated sculpture. Atollo creates direct and diffuse light and it also is dimmable.
