E63 Ruspa Table Lamp
Originally designed for Bieffeplast in 1963, Umberto Riva’s E63 Ruspa Table Lamp has been recently reintroduced by Tacchini for their Edizioni Collection. With a unique abstract design and an unconventional aesthetic, the Ruspa Table Lamp has a distinctive bio-morphic form that is an invitation for every user. A perfect addition to a modern home office, the downlight, and moveable shade embraces that idea of invitation. His original design is meticulously crafted and embraces Riva’s famous claim, “I do not like the right angle.” As a part of Tacchini’s reintroduction, Riva’s table lamp is now manufactured as a LED fixture. The Ruspa is currently available in a variety of finishes, including Polished Chrome, Satin Chrome, Stain Champagne Gold, Satin Copper, and painted Zinc Yellow or Pastel Green.
Umberto Riva was born in Milan in 1928. He is best known for the breadth of his design work, with projects that address urban spaces, architecture, landscaping, interior design and product design. He studied architecture in Venice under Carlo Scarpa. His work often paid particular attention to the experience of a space or a product rather than adhering to the tenants of classical architecture or design principles. Design influences include Scarpa, Frank Lloyd Wright and American Craftsman Style as a whole, with particular impact coming from the designs of the 1930s. Awards and accolades for Riva include being named a Fellow of the Accademia di San Luca, as well as being handed the gold medal for architecture by the Triennale di Milano in 2003.
Tacchini was founded in 1967 by Antonio Tacchini in Brianza, Italy, an area famous for furniture production set between Como and Milan. A core belief is that the strength of the idea is central to every creative process, part of a logical process of evolution, from the analysis of the idea to the three dimensions of the object, before ultimately becoming the essence of living. Tacchini strives to improve home and public spaces’ quality, in a world dominated by constant changing in needs, technologies and new lifestyles. That’s why Tacchini always analyses and improves its products and services with passion, creativity, and responsibility. Working with leading designers like Pearson Llyod, Jonas Wagell, Patrick Norguet, Luca Nichetto. Monica Förster and the design team of Claesson Koivisto Rune, their creativity know no bounds.
