The architect and designer Gae Aulenti conceived the Patroclus lamp, created by Artemide in 1975. A decidedly unusual light object, Patroclus was created to interact directly with the space that contains it. The body is in transparent blown glass, partially covered with a rhomboid-patterned metal mesh. This armor is obtained by welding steel wires, resistant to the heat of the glass which is blown directly into the cage. The glass is therefore multifaceted and illuminates the room by designing a particular texture on the walls and ceilings. Unusual both in its globular shape and in the luminous effect it achieves, Patroclus is able to create a special atmosphere in any environment, ideally linked to the sensory experiments of the "Seventies". The bulbs that can be used can be of the Halo type 1x77W or LED DIM 1x15W, with E27 socket, not included.
