Rare Arenzano table lamp designed by architect, engineer and designer Ignazio Gardella. An éminence grise – Gardella was a powerhouse behind the scenes, founding Azucena, along with Luigi Caccia Dominioni in 1947. He came from a long dynasty of architects who fathered the Italian Modernist movement.
This decorative lamp is perhaps most distinctive for its graceful curvatures found both in its milk glass shade and brass stem that rises up to form a handle. It produces an ambient light created from three small under-mounted bayonet bulbs. The glass is in good condition with a pleasing patina and age to the base and stem, marking it out as a very early model. Rewired for UK use and PAT tested.
