An extremely rare architectural wall lamp from the Sintesi range designed by Ernesto Gismondi in 1976. High quality production constructed from coated steel and Aluminium.
Gismondi founded Artemide in 1960 which to this day produces some of the most innovative and interesting lighting that comes from Italy. The Sintesi range was well ahead of its time and although predates postmodernism bears seminal characteristics of the movement. A close friend of Sottsass, Gismondi provided the capital to get the Memphis Milano collective off the ground and into production and remains a major shareholder.
In excellent original condition.
Projection of arm from bracket to connection with stem: 40cm
Length of stem to tip of Hood: 86cm
