Fantasma Piccolo Floor Lamp

c. 1961

by Tobia + Afra Scarpa
for Flos

The Fantasma Piccolo floor lamp is a narrower version of the cocoon inspired Fantasma floor lamp by Tobia Scarpa. Sprouted in 1961, this bold, dimma­ble floor lamp contin­ues to trans­form and envi­ron­ment that surrounds it while allow­ing you to choose the right inten­sity. The diffused light illu­mi­nates the space through a white powder sprayed with a unique cocoon resin before being protected by a trans­par­ent spray finish. The Fantasma Piccolo is a func­tional piece of art that will emit a strik­ing glow without overpowering.
