Afra & Tobia Scarpa for Flos, floor lamp 'Fantasma', metal, spray-on plastic coating, Italy, 1961

This biomorphic floor lamp is typical for 1960s Italian design. The lampshade is made of a polyester 'cocoon' stretched over a metal frame. It is called 'Fantasma' as it resembles a phantom draped in a sheet or seems to hold a person or animal that is trying to burst out of its skin. A very frivolous and dynamic lamp that will certainly make any room come to live thanks to its protruding elements and expressive character.

Afra (1937-2011) & Tobia (1935-) Scarpa both studied on the Venice Institute of Architecture. Tobia first worked for the Italian glass manufacturer Venini. From 1960 on the couple opened their own design office. Their work includes architecture and everyday items like furniture and clothing. Tobia & Afra designed for numerous major Italian and international companies like Flos, Gavina, B&B Italia, Cassina, Knoll International and many interior projects for numerous companies worldwide.
