Gjlla Giani for the Nucleo Division of Sormani, pair of 'Radar' table lamps, pewter and glass, Italy, 1971

This rare pair of table lamps is designed by the Italian architect Gjlla Giani for the Nucleo Division of Sormani. The lamp embodies a uniform design; simplistic yet very strong in lines and proportions. Giani created the illusion that the spherical light bulb is floating on the semicircular shade. The stylistic roundness is also discernible in the base, featuring a cylindrical shape. The corpus is made entirely of pewter, which contributes to its monochrome look, but when the light is switched on, the pewter is accentuated by a warm- toned glow. The lamp is impressed with ‘Sormani spa div. Nucleo Made In Italy Peltro 95% - Arch. Gjlla Giani’.

The family-owned company Sormani was established in 1961 in the northern Italian town of Arosio. At the end of the sixties, the firm distinguished itself by its avant-garde furniture and furnishings in plastics. Richard Neagle was among the first using vacuum-formed plastic for the creation of his ‘Nike’ furniture line in 1968. The Nucleo Division was particularly focused on lighting experimenting with different forms and materials, which resulted in sculptural and artistic appearances.
