If a design still looks futuristic over 70 years after its first appearance, it is probably safe to say that it's unlikely to age much in the coming years. That's what you get with the Pietro Chiesa Luminator floor lamp.

This modernist gem dates back to 1933, yet still looks like nothing else on the market, a nickel-plated brass structure that throws out indirect light from the top – a modern(ist) take on the burning torch if you like.

You can control the light with a dimmer, but you can't do much about the price of this 190cm light – a hefty £1,430 for the Fontana Arte reissue.
