E63 Ruspa Table Lamp

c. 1963

by Umberto Riva
for Tacchini

Initially designed for Bief­fe­plast in 1963, Umberto Riva’s E63 Ruspa Table Lamp has is 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 invites every user. A perfect addi­tion to a modern home office, the down­light and move­able shade embraces that idea of invi­ta­tion. As a part of Tacchini’s rein­tro­duc­tion, Riva’s table lamp is now a LED fixture. The Ruspa is currently avail­able in various finishes, includ­ing Polished Chrome, Satin Chrome, Satin Cham­pagne Gold, Satin Copper, and painted Zinc Yellow or Pastel Green.

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.
