Born in Mendrisio, Switzerland in 1943, Mario Botta is a working architect and designer in the postmodern style. Studying at the Liceo Artistico in Milan and the University of Architecture in Venice, he has worked with the greats, Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn, designing houses and churches. His architecture features strong geometric forms, just like his lighting.
The Shogun lamp is iconic, with Botta’s signature black and white stripes and manipulated metal. The perforated shades allow you to alter the positioning of the intricate shadows cast over the surrounding walls. Excellent vintage condition, minor surface scuffs, rewired and PAT tested for UK.
