This is a very rare 1st edition of the world-famous lamp Eclisse, designed by Vico Magistretti in 1965.
This iconic lamp won the Compasso D’Oro design award in 1967 and became an ambassador of Italian design, being part of permanent exhibitions like MoMa in NY and Milan Design Museum.
The ingenious design is a superb balance of form and functionality, design and utility. The concept lies in the adjustable lampshade that evokes an eclipse concept, allowing direct or shaded lighting. This desk lamp can be used also as wall lamp.
Switch and plug have been replaced.
