Pipistrello by martinelli luce
Table or standing lamp with diffused light, adjustable height with telescopic movement. Diffuser in white opal methacrylate. Stainless steel telescope. Painted metal base and knob in white, dark brown, purple red and satin aluminium. Designed in 1965 by Gae Aulenti for Martinelli Luce, the lamp is made both for telescope and for methacrylate by molfing techniques innovative for the time in which it was designed. The shape of conic base grows in the height through the ribs of the diffuser as the wings of a bat. Resting on a table or standing on floor this lamp features wiht its expressive power any type of envirnment.
The “mini” version of the famous Pipistrello lamp designed by Gae Aulenti in 1965 won immediate recognition as an example of a perfect rereading, in a contemporary key, of a timeless original. Minipipistrello is acclaimed in Italy and even more so abroad, where it is now a true objet du désir. As well as in white and black-brown, the Minipipistrello is now presented in a version featuring a copper base and knob with au courant flair that sheds a completely new light on the purity of the lines of this lamp. The new version is made even more precious by the architect’s signature and a customized logo.
