Acril­ica Table Lamp

c. 1962/2019

by Joe Colombo
for Oluce

In collab­o­ra­tion with his brother Gianni, Joe Colombo created the Acril­ica table lamp in 1962 for Oluce. Methacry­late, used for about a decade in the field of light­ing, often cut or ther­mo­formed, found very partic­u­lar use in the design of Acril­ica. The lamp’s thick­ness and curve meant that the light from a fluo­res­cent lamp within the painted steel base moved through the trans­par­ent body, even­tu­ally light­ing the head thanks to its conduction properties.
