VINTAGE VICO MAGISTRETTI OLUCE ATOLLO MODERN DOME LAMP. Artist, Architect, Professor, Designer, Furniture Designer, Lighting Designer, Interior Designer. Italian designer Vico Magistretti established himself as a master of simple, elegant and even understated design solutions to domestic needs and desires.His work is driven by a passion for building off of what he calls, "anonymous traditional objects, " which he finds extraordinary for the very fact that they are anonymous, and can go on repeating themselves in time with slight differences, because they're basically resistant to conceptual wear. I've always been attracted by this kind of re-use, not least because I don't like the design aspect to show too much. Illuminate your living room, bedroom or office with the sleek styling and ample light offered by this contemporary modern table lamp.
For many years now, Atollo has no longer been a lamp, or rather, it has no longer been just a lamp. It has become a myth, an icon: one of the best know symbols of Italian design wordwide, one of the very few products which people recognise and call with its own name. Designed by Vico Magistretti in 1977, it was awarded the Compasso d'Oro in 1979 and became, since then, part of the permanent collections of the world's major museum of design, as well as part of the furniture of many homes of those who love and are able to select the things surrounding them.Atollo's secret probably lies in the geometrical construction of its shapes: the cone on the cylinder and the semisphere above all. A luminous sculpture from which nothing can be removed to which nothing can be added. And which nothing can copy.
