Designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1972 and an object in MoMA's collection, the Lampadina Table Lamp combines a bulb that has a science-lab feel with a stand that evokes a film reel. In Italian, “lampadina” literally means “light bulb” and for this design, Castiglioni played with the concept of light through a decidedly meta recreation of a light bulb. The Lampadina’s clear bulb provides direct lighting, although a portion of it has been sandblasted to create a frosted circle that casts a more diffused light. The anodized aluminum base contains the excess power cord and the lamp is powered by a standard plug-in. Achille Castiglioni has work in MoMA’s collection. The Lampadina Table Lamp measures 9.4"h x 4.9"diam. with a 90” black cord. Made in Italy.

  • Achille Castiglioni

    Born in Milan in 1918, Achille Castiglioni is an internationally acknowledged master of Italian design whose work is represented in MoMA's collection. During his 52-year career, he designed and collaborated on nearly 150 design objects, from lamps to cameras to car seats. His work is known for combining simplicity with fun, along with close attention to how objects are used in real life. In 1997, MoMA launched the first individual retrospective of his work with the exhibition Achille Castiglioni: Design! Prior to that, his designs were featured in numerous exhibitions at the Museum, including The Modern Movement in Italy: Architecture and Design (1954) and Recent Acquisitions: Design (1967-8 and 1970-1). Castiglioni’s work has had a significant impact on the history of the applied arts and has taught generations about good design.
