1960s Mini Pipistrello table lamp by Gae Aulenti for Martinelli Luce


You know something? The Pipistrello Lamp was one of the first things we ever wrote about back in 2006. Fast forward seven years and there's a new version of this 1960s classic on the market - the Mini Pipistrello table lamp by Gae Aulenti for Martinelli Luce.

As you might have guessed, this is a smaller version of the iconic 1966 design. You can do the comparison between the two sizes below. It's still a faithful reproduction though (size aside), with the 35cm bat-shaped light featuring a white methacrylate opal shade and a stand of white varnished metal or dark chestnut, not to mention a telescopic stainless steel stem.

You can order one now, priced at £508.30.
