Snoopy Table Lamp

c. 1967

by Achille + Pier Giacomo Castiglioni
for Flos


The Snoopy table lamp features a white marble cylin­dri­cal base and diffuser in glossy black enam­eled aluminum. The diffuser features three holes at the top that reveal light directly from the loca­tion of the bulb and also provide a mech­a­nism for gener­ated heat to escape from the Snoopy table lamp. The canted marble is balanced with the coun­ter­weight of the canted glass plate – this plate creates a wonder­ful profile reveal in conjunc­tion with the perime­ter of the diffuser. Snoopy table lamp is included in the perma­nent collec­tion of several museums world­wide includ­ing the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

In 1938, brothers Livio and Pier Giacomo created the Castiglioni Studio, after a few years of collaboration they were joined by a third brother, Achille, in 1944. By 1952 the designs from the studio were helmed by Pier and Achille. As industrial designers, the brothers pushed the limits of design and materials. Receiving a collective achievement of 9 Compasso d'Oro awards. It is believed that over the course of their careers Achille and Pier created over 150 products. Castiglioni Studio had design relationships with Flos, Zanotta, Alessi, and many more. Over the course of their career as design collaborators, the aesthetics of their designs were so in-line with one another, that there was never a clear delineation between the stylistic approaches of either brother.
