The Cobra represents one of the first lighting fixtures in resin, produced with a particular molding system. Its shape can be inscribed inside a sphere, the simple but at the same time perfect and non-replicable geometric shape, from which Cobra was born. However, the lamp can change its position through the independent rotations of the base and the reflector; the result is an unexpected movement effect that can change the size of the lamp with a simple gesture. A rotation is enough to make it change its appearance into a vibrating "S", a sinusoidal configuration that seems to crystallize the leap of a cobra ready to attack.
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.
