Zanuso Table Lamp

c. 2013

by Marco Zanuso
for Oluce

The Zanuso table lamp from Oluce features a large adjustable rotary Perspex diffuser fastened to a lacquered metal base. Orig­i­nally conceived for use as a desk lamp, the iconic shape finds use not only on desks but gener­ally on any bearing plane, its primary role being to light a portion of a room.


Marco Zanuso

Italy (1916–2001)

Architect, designer and university lecturer, Marco Zanuso was one of the leading interpreters of the Modern Movement.

Trained at the Polytechnic University of Milan and, in the immediate post-war years, co-editor of the Domus magazine with Ernesto N. Rogers, he was awarded the Medaglia d’oro and the Gran Premio at the Milan Triennale on a number of occasions (VIII, IX, X, XI and XIII editions), and won ve Compassi d’Oro between 1956 and 1985.

Zanuso was one of the first designers in Italy to take an interest in product industrialization, going beyond aesthetics to incorporate technological, industrial, and communication variables.
