The 60s – men on the moon and design that reflected that that futuristic vision. And some of it – like the Dalù lamp – still looks futuristic today. Originally designed in by Vico Magistretti, 1969, it’s unique look is derived from being made of a single piece of melamine plastic.
Previously you have had to be lucky enough to find one of the originals (we once found 2 – £5 for the pair would you believe) but the good news is that Artemide have reissued this classic design.
Available in black, white, orange and red it’s just the thing to brighten up your retro pad. You can find out more about the manufacturers Artemide on their website. Or if you are interested in buying one they are currently available at London Lighting Company (020 7589 3612) for a bargain £50 – that’s considerably less than the value of a mint original.
