or Call to Order

The ADA Lamp, designed by Umberto Riva for Tacchini, takes shape, as often occurs, from other forms. Then, little by little, during the design and engi­neer­ing stages, it is trans­formed and, in some regards, simpli­fied until it achieves its final look, remi­nis­cent of the arche­type of a table lamp. Its strength derives from the mate­r­ial: tinted fiber­glass, which, when illu­mi­nated from within, is translu­cent and offers a glimpse of the fibers from which it is made, lending texture to the light. Avail­able in off white or green in either matte or glossy finish.

Umberto Riva

Italy (1928)

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, and receiving the Gold Medal for Italian Architecture by the Triennale di Milano in 2003.
