The Boalum lamp by Artemide, designed by Livio Castiglioni and Gianfranco Frattini in the 1970s, is to be considered in all respects a visionary dream and a precursor of today's lighting. Defined by Domus magazine as "a snake of infinite light", it immediately entered the history of Italian and world design. Made of translucent flexible PVC and with resin terminals, it is almost indestructible and can be used to create beautiful lighting effects. It can be connected in series up to 4 elements to compose a single moldable tube. Boalum produces a pleasant moving and diffused light and thanks to its flexibility it can be places on the ground or on a table, hung or rolled up to and object. Today it is produced with integrated 20 Watt LED, a luminous flux of 780 Lumens and a 2700 Kelvin warm light temperature. Boalum is part of numerous collections of design museums, from the Philadelphia Museum of Art to the Museum of Italian Design in Milan.
