Tobia Scarpa Fantasma Piccolo floor lamp


Flos, Italy, 1970s


£5,000 + VAT

Fantasma, translates to ghost in Italian, reflecting the almost evanescent presence of the lamp. Created using cocoon resin on a metal internal structure, the shade emits a warm glow. The Fantasma Piccolo floor lamp is the first design of Tobia Scarpa renowned taraxacum forms, a series of sculptural lighting. 

Tobia Scarpa, born in Venice, Italy in 1935. Both he and his soon wife Afra earned degrees in architecture from the Università Iuav di Venezia in 1957. From 1957 to 1961 Tobia worked as a glass designer at the Murano glassworks of Venini, before the two artists opened their own design office in Montebelluna.

This is thought to be a rare early model of this lamp due to the colouration of the resin. It is in exemplary condition, the old ones rarely surviving without the metal poking through the resin. In this example the cover is fully unscathed and it has been rewired and PAT tested to UK standards.
