Design Angelo Mangiarotti, 1967
Blown smoked Murano glass, metal
Made in Italy by Artemide

This iconic table lamp from Angelo Mangiarotti, originally designed in 1967, is now being reintroduced in the US market. The Lesbo table lamp produces a diffused incandescent light and features a body and diffuser in blown, smoked Murano glass with a polished metal base. Includes dimmer switch on cord.

Angelo Mangiarotti was born in Milan in 1921. He received his architecture degree in 1948 from the Politechnical University of Milan. In 1953-54, while he was a visiting a professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, he met Frank Lloyd Wright, Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe and Konrad Wachsmann. With architectural offices in Milan and later Tokyo, Mangiarotti spent many years as a visiting professor for various Universities around the world and finally in 1990 he returned to his Alma Mater as a visiting professor of architecture at the Politechnical University of Milan. Mangiarotti's designs attempt to uncover the intrinsic characteristic of each object, because only "objective" design can avoid misleading the user to become collectively recognizable by overcoming the individual design.

The Artemide light has never been solely a function of seeing, or an opportunity for formal experimentation with lamps as objects. For more than forty years, Artemide has aimed to propose light as a companion to people, as a source of physical pleasure and mental comfort. Artemide has done so, with different work groups, searching through the whole design process, starting with a declaration of values - The human light. Beyond the definition, the human light is intelligent light. A light that knows it has to relate to people, accompanying them in their daily activities.
