Hebi is the japanese word for Snake. Taking inspiration from the shape of a snake, the japanese designer Isao Hosoe conceived this iconic lamp in 1969.
The lamp is made of a flexible metal tube is with a plastic cover, and it can be adjusted in various positions, taking the shape you desire.
This piece is the rarest and bigger version (150 cm long) and comes from the early years of production, that includes also the famous VLM 475 switch designed by Achille Castiglioni. Excellent conditions and perfectly working.
