Other versions: For the moment it is unknown if this 1960s metal floor lamp exists in several versions.
The design of this floor lamp is very similar with a design by Vico Magistretti and Mario Tedeschi from 1946. Their floor lamp is named Clarítas.
Artimeta was founded by Floris H. Fiedeldij in 1960. Artimeta not only produced lighting, they also made furniture. The company also sold lamps made by Vistosi, Venini, Stilnovo and several other famous companies. Quality was always important. Also French designer Mathieu Matégot created several items for Artimeta.
After the bankruptcy, the company got a restart under the name Art Light. Today the Artimeta name is back in use and they are importer, producer and distributor of design lighting. Today the are located in Amstenrade.
Mathieu Matégot designed several items for Artimeta but in all probability not this floor lamp.
Someone suggested that it is a lamp made by Artiforte, another company from The Netherlands, but without any proof, unfortunately. More info about Artiforte can be found over here.
