Period: 1970s – Mid-Century Modern.

Designer: Ernesto Gismondi in 1975.

Manufacturer: Artemide, Pregnana Milanese, near Milan, Italy. 

Ernesto Gismondi: born in San Remo, Italy on December 25, 1931. In 1957 he graduated in Aeronautical Engineering at the Milan Polytechnic and in 1959 he gained a degree in Missile Engineering at the Professional School of Engineering in Rome.

Since the beginning of the 1960s he has been devoting to the planning and production of lighting equipment, founding Studio Artemide S.A.S., together with designer Sergio Mazza. He became established as an international designer, participating, as one of the inventors, in “Memphis”, an avant-garde movement that brought about a profound evolution in the design sector and designing many successful appliances for the Group.

Artemide: The Artemide Group is based in Pregnana Milanese, Italy. The company is best known for the Tizio desk lamp designed by Richard Sapper in 1972 and the Tolomeo desk lamp, designed by Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina in 1986.

Designers who have collaborated with the company include Mario Botta, Sir Norman Foster, Ettore Sottsass, Enzo Mari, Neil Poulton, Karim Rashid, Giò Ponti and many others.

Cornalux Bulb: The Oluce Cornalux with its famous “hammerhead” is symbolic of some of the most famous lamps made by Oluce, such as the “Agnoli 387” designed by Tito Agnoli in 1954 and then in 1965, the “Spider” series by Joe Colombo. The Cornalux lamp is still available.

The first lamp of the Artemide company was the Alfa table lamp, designed by Sergio Mazza in 1959, in production from 1960 until today.

Metal structure in opaque nickel-plate; diffuser in crystal glass; base in marble. The metal parts are hand turned. There is an edition from the 1970s with a rosewood base.
