If you hunt around, you'll find a recent reissue of this. But trust us, you want an original version of the Harvey Guzzini Design Sorella table lamp.
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.
We featured one of these in white some time back, but now there's a rare 1970s Guzzini Sorella space age table lamp in black being offered on the eBay site.
Designed by Studio Tecnico Harvey for Guzzini back in 1972, this space age design got even more notoriety for its extensive use in cult 70s series Space 1999 – see over the page for a picture of it there. You can see why it was used, even today it looks ahead of its time.
This particular example is in black and described as being in 'very good' condition, although there is a tiny hairline crack to the base, which is pictured on the site (should you want a closer look). Saying that, right now it's just 7p, which is an absolute steal.
