Space Age Lights – Over Sixty Table Lamps of Retro Sci-Fi-Like Looking Table Lamps Design Collection
Imagine your home without table lamps. A gathering of friends would feel stark and impersonal rather than warm and convivial . There would be no place to curl up and read the latest best seller. Table lamps are part of what gives the home personality. Yet the average person knows very little about selecting and decorating with table lamps. Space Age Lights is a great exhibition of table lamps at the Triennale Design Museum.
It consists of over sixty table lamps designed and made in the 1960s and early 70s, dubbed by historians of design as “Space Age”. Some of these lamps are parts of mass produced international collections while others are unique design pieces by well known designers such as Joe Colombo, Vico Magistretti, Gino Sarfatti and Giotto Wick. The exhibition started on May 12th and will be open until September, 5th. [via]
