from GUBI

stemlite floor lamp

Design Bill Curry, 1962
Glass shade, steel stem, aluminium base
Made by Gubi

The Stemlite was the first 'total look' lamp, a pioneering new typology conceived by American Designer Bill Curry, which replaced the traditional base-plus-shade form with a single self-contained unit comprising interchangeable modules. His debut design, the much-emulated Stemlite, was named "most influential lamp of the year" by Industrial Design Magazine in 1965, used on the set of the original Star Trek TV series, and remained in production until 1977. Now remastered by GUBI after almost half a century, the new collection comprises a table lamp, floor lamp, wall lamp, and a new pendant - a simple inversion of the original design - in a contemporary yet authentic color palette.

William 'Bill' Edwin Curry captured the zeitgeist of the 1960s and '70s with his iconic lamp designs. From his unique Los Angeles vantage point at the meeting point of art, design and engineering, during an era defined by the space race, pop culture and a new forward-looking optimism, he translated the wonder and delight he saw around him into simple yet intelligent ideas with clear visual narratives.
