Richard Sapper ‘Tizio’ table lamp


Artemide, Italy, 1972


SALE £800 + VAT each from £1,100 + VAT each

Richard Sapper (1932-2015) was born in German but worked in Italy, and his work brings together the best design principles of both nations. On one hand the ‘Tizio’ lamp possesses a northern European emphasis on functionalism. It was conceived as the ideal table lamp by its creator because of its wide range of movements, based on precisely calibrated counterweights at the end of each of the arms. On the other hand, it has a radically lithe profile and dusky, equipoised sense of style redolent of southern European sensibilities. It has become “an icon of high-tech design”, according to the MoMA where an example exhibited, and had its heyday as the lamp of choice for the design-conscious bright young things of 80s New York.

Pair available. Both lamps have an original mark and show signs of minor wear. Recently rewired to UK standards.
