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 design of Shogun lamp is based upon the form of a samurai’s visor. Comprised of two perforated and adjustable shade elements which allow you to alter the positioning of the intricate shadows cast over the surrounding walls.
The wall mounted version is no longer in production. We are fortunate to have found a pair in excellent original condition. One of the lamps looks almost unused while the other has a few spots of paint loss to the inside of the visor which is not noticeable when mounted. Both have been rewired.
