eBay watch: Reissued Harvey Guzzini Sorella space age table lamp by Nemo

Sor1

Not the first time we've featured the design, as the Sorella table lamp by Harvey Guzzini has been something of a space age holy grail in the past. Not so anymore, as Nemo has bought the rights to this classic 1970s lamp and is selling official reissues right now.

Which essentially means much the same lamp for a fraction of the cost – these angled lamps tended to go for hundreds on eBay on good condition. If you aren't familiar with the Sorella, you don't watch enough old films and TV – this 1972 'Studio Tecnico Harvey' design featured prominently in the likes of Space 1999 and James Bond's Moonraker and still retains that futuristic look today.

Best of all with the new ones is the colour, no age discolouration here and of course, all the electrics will be checked and ready to go. Not too many sellers around in the UK, but Glasgow-based Spatial Lighting are official Nemo dealers and have stock of the new light right now, which they are selling at a fixed price online via eBay. A little cheaper than most too at £120. See the lamp 'in action' in Space 1999 over the page.

  • these have been on the Nemo web site since last september but still no sign, some lighting websites have even removed them from their pages latley. I’ve had a pair on order since last year and rang the supplier recently – still no news. Its now common belife in the commumity that they will never show…glad i didnt unload my original like many did when this was anounced.

  • i’d want to see a picture “in hand” before i bought those.

  • they DONT have them in stock – its just another pre-order auction – they changed the description last night !
