Other versions: This adjustable 60s bedside lamp exists in several colours. It was also produced as a wall lamp.

The design of this table lamp is based on a design of a table lamp by Angelo Lelii for Arredoluce from 1954. Also the Dutch company Gispen produced a very similar lamp as the Angelo Lelii lamp.

This eclipse style adjustable bedside lamp was acquired in Sicily, Italy. All the electric parts are Italian. The plug has an S logo pressed on it on both sides, but that’s probably the company that produced the plug, unfortunately.
