Amuleto Table Lamp
Description
MoMA Exclusive: Designed to represent the Sun, Moon and Earth, the Amuleto Table Lamp consists of three red, yellow and blue rings separated by two long arms. Its design came about when Alessandro Mendini, a designer with work in MoMA’s collection, was describing light to his grandson. The Amuleto Table Lamp’s name means “lucky charm” in Italian, and the design is intended to bring good fortune. Specifically, Mendini wished for his grandson's good fortune and eye health. The slim yellow halo representing the Sun casts light on your workspace with a crown of 51 levels dimmable LEDs, while the lamp’s moving mechanism allows you to easily position the light in a variety of directions.
 
The Amuleto Table Lamp makes an ideal desk lamp, or position it on your mantel or side table to create an interesting bright spot in your living space. The Amuleto Table Lamp is designed to provide light while minimizing its effect on your senses: It is optimized to be flicker-free, does not produce UV or IR radiation, and, thanks to the designer’s collaboration with a university-affiliated hospital (ophthalmologist-tested), has photobiological safety certificates (best grade) attesting to its minimal impact on the eyes. Black cord is 126” long. The Amuleto Table Lamp is made by the company that was founded by Alessandro Mendini.
Why We Chose This
"I am on a quest to communicate through my objects," remarked Alessandro Mendini, a designer represented in MoMA's collection. Mendini co-founded Studio Alchimia with Ettore Sottsass, an experimental collective that broke from modernism's strict rules and favored bold colors and decorative elements. Mendini's Amuleto Lamp is at once a useful LED task lamp and an eye-catching piece that can live anywhere in your home.
