Description

Joe Colombo created bold and daring designs which exhibited a strong optimistic vision for a 'habitat of the future.' Several of his works have reached iconic status as design objects including this space-age lamp known as the 'Vademecum'.

The Vademecum lamp (Model 4034) is a coveted Colombo design for Italian maker Kartell. The design features a graphic plastic base with a stainless steel visor. The visor can be adjusted to control the amount of light and protect the bulbs when not in use.

This rare out of production lamp is a must have character piece for any contemporary home.
