1960s Gae Aulenti-designed Martinelli Luce Pipistrello table lamp gets a copper finish

We have featured both the standard version and the mini version in the past, but now there's a new version of the classic 1960s Gae Aulenti-designed Martinelli Luce Pipistrello table lamp in a copper finish.

It's the same iconic 1966 design, available in those standard and mini versions, both with adjustable height from that stainless steel 'telescope', finished off with a white opal methacrylate diffuser. Only this version has copper finish metal base for the first time, which really sets if off.

Oh yes, an LED light source too. Well, this is 2014, after all.

If you want one, you can pre-order now, with a standard version selling for  £1,671 and the mini version yours for
