This lamp exists in many forms. Who copied who? That could be the question. Is it a design by Gino Sarfatti, Robert Mathieu, Achille Castiglioni, to name a few? Many designers copied great designs and they still do. This lamp is probably made in Italy. It is acquired in Italy and the wiring, plug and socket are Italian.
