Oluce Zanuso 275 Table Lamp
Designed between 1963 and 1965, the 275 was conceived as a desk lamp. Note that it is not intended as an operational lamp, but rather to solve the lighting problem on a work table placed in an environment that is not necessarily an office.
That is the reason behind the large methacrylate dome supported by a curved arm, but above all the unpredictable kinematic mechanism, at the limits of static. In fact from the initial folded position where the diffuser is superimposed on the circular base, with practically the same diameter, one rotation brings it to an eccentric position.
On one side, there remains the circumference of the base, on the other that of the head: the effect is particularly marked when the structure is painted black, thus creating one black circle and one white, illuminated circle on the table.
Today, the 275 is "seeing the light" again, represented in a philological way also thanks to collaboration with Zanuso's heirs. Iconic in its form, it can be used not only at desks, but in general on all sizes of table, its primary role being to light a portion of a room.
Its message is identical to that of the original, but loaded with an additional component: memory, and nostalgia, for a unique character on the stage of world design. Table lamp giving diffused and reflected light.
Opal PMMA cover rotating on the base. Curved support and painted metal base. On/off power switch.
