Eclisse - iconic design table lamp from the sixties
The table lamp Eclisse was designed by Vico Magistretti for the Italian lighting manufacturer Artemide as early as 1967. The illuminant sits in the head of the small sculpture and is covered by a rotatable sphere, open on one side, which serves as a kind of manual dimmer.
The open sphere in the Eclisse lamp can be turned freely, revealing the inner bulb step by step. Depending on how much of the bulb the sphere shows, the light is either stronger or weaker, more direct or indirect: If the sphere covers the bulb completely, the light only shines out on its sides. If the bulb is completely visible, the light also shines directly into the room.
This enables Eclisse manual dimming of the light and creates the desired atmosphere for relaxing, reading or working. The Eclisse table lamp from Artemide is made of lacquered metal and is available in different colours. 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.
For the 100th birthday of Vico Magistretti (†), Artemide has reinvented a design icon of the 20. century: The legendary lamp Eclisse transforms the design of the 60s into the future with four new metallic paint finishes - the result of an innovative and environmentally friendly coating technology.
