"My project is a black and white graphic intervention: two realities that have accompanied my work since 1963. I wanted to create a strongly geometric image that involves the entire spherical cap, which allows a new surface aesthetic optical value in the action of the rotation of the light. Perception not possible in the essential and perfect form wanted by the very good Elio Martinelli fifty years ago".
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Cobra lamp, Martinelli Luce decided to have his character interpreted by the designers who collaborate with Martinelli, through the creation of a graphic texture to be applied to the lamp body. A tribute from all of them to Elio Martinelli, who designed the lamp in 1968. 23 creations in a limited edition of 30 signed and numbered specimens.
Table lamp with direct light emission, formed by two bodies molded in resin. The lower body rotates on the underlying steel base and is connected to the upper body via a central joint which allows for 360° rotation. Internal reflector in white painted aluminium.
