Eclisse - iconic design table lamp from the sixties
The Eclisse table lamp was designed in 1967 by Vico Magistretti for the Italian lamp manufacturer Artemide . The lamp sits in the head of the small sculpture and is covered by a rotatable ball that is open on one side and serves as a kind of manual dimmer.
The open ball in the Eclisse lamp can be rotated freely, revealing the inner light bulb step by step. Depending on how much the ball shows of the lamp, the light is either stronger or weaker, more direct or indirect: If the ball completely covers the lamp, the light only shines out on its sides. If the illuminant is completely visible, the light shines directly into the room.
Eclisse enables manual dimming of the light and creates the desired atmosphere for relaxing, reading or working. The Eclisse table lamp by Artemide is made of painted metal and is available in three colors. The small lamp is also suitable for wall mounting.
The Eclisse table lamp by Artemide was already awarded the Compasso d'Oro Design Prize in 1967. Today the small lamp can be found in numerous design museums around the world.
