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.
