Chimera floor lamp - classic lamps from the 1960s with diffuser made of opal methacrylate
The Chimera floor lamp was designed in 1969 by Vico Magistretti for the Italian lamp manufacturer Artemide . The elegant wave shape makes Chimera a special light sculpture, whose white body radiates warm and indirect light.
The three illuminants inside Chimera illuminate the luminaire body with different intensities. As a result, the waveform of the lamp is elegantly accentuated and emphasizes its sculptural character.
The translucent body of Artemide s Chimera floor lamp is made of methacrylate. The wavy shape of the lamp is achieved by hot bending the material during the manufacturing process. The base is made of painted metal.
