Luminator floor lamp by Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni

The design embodies the essence of minimalism: elegant, modern beauty stripped down to pure function. I was a bit surprised to learn that Luminator lamp was created in 1954. Look at its sleek silhouette! I does not make you think about the 50s, does it? The lamp is still produced by Italian company Flos, internationally known for its iconic lighting.

Achille Castiglioni and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni were inspired by the shape of silver-domed spotlight bulbs, introduced at the Italian market in the 50s. I should feature it at Proud to be the bulb post.

The Castiglioni duo became one of the most influential figures in Italian design. Their innovative designs, including Luminator lamp, are a part of A&D Design Object collection at The Museum of Modern Art in New York.

  3. Jest nie tylko elegancka, ale bardzo praktyczna: nóżki można odrkęcić (łatwe przechowywanie) a 200W zarówka oświetla dużą powierzchnię.

    It is not only elegant, but practical as well: the legs can be unscrewed for easy storage and the 200W bulb lights up a lot of space.
