IPreward-winning design table lamp from the 1960s
The Nesso table lamp was developed in 1967 by the designer Giancarlo Mattioli and the Gruppo architetti urbanisti citta nuova for the Italian lamp manufacturer Artemide . As early as 1965, Nesso won 1. Prize in a design competition in Milan.
The Nesso table lamp by Artemide brilliantly embodies the modern spirit of the 1960s with all its bright and optimistic colors and shapes. The rounded and organic design of the lamp evokes associations with a mushroom.
Nesso provides direct and diffuse light. The light penetrates colored through the mushroom head, while shining directly down onto the base. The base and lampshade from Nesso are made of ABS resin, which is injection molded in chrome-plated molds.
Today the Nesso table lamp is a classic of lamp design and can be found in numerous design museums around the world, for example in the renowned New York Museum of Modern Art. Nesso is available in the colors white and orange.
