Discover the allure of the Sixties with the Shell (“Conchiglia”) 60s lamp, a timeless icon of Italian design by the renowned duo Luigi Massoni and Luciano Buttura. This masterpiece is a standout piece in vintage decor and has graced movie sets and distinguished interiors around the globe.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Shell lamp features a smooth, white methacrylate shell delicately perched on a sleek, thin chromed metal frame. This combination not only provides a stunning aesthetic but also embodies the innovative spirit of Space Age design. The clean lines and futuristic form are quintessentially 60s, offering a striking yet elegant visual appeal.

What sets this piece apart is its rarity and the inclusion of the matching vessel in white methacrylate, making it an ultra-rare collector’s item. Like the celebrated Bud and Baobab lamps, the Shell lamp is a testament to the enduring allure of mid-century modern design, adding a unique touch to any space.

This lamp is in excellent vintage condition, with brilliantly polished chrome and minor signs of wear that add to its character. Small scratches on the plastic structure and a removable minor stain on the tray highlight its authentic vintage charm without detracting from its beauty.

Elevate your home decor with this classic piece that captures the essence of 1960s innovation and style. Perfect for those who appreciate iconic design and wish to infuse their space with a bit of timeless elegance.

Experience the magic of the Space Age with this exceptional Shell lamp by Massoni & Bottura, a true symbol of Italian design excellence.
