Ennio Lucini for Harvey Guzzini DH (Design House), 'Cespuglio' table lamp, aluminum, acrylic, Italy, 1968

This provocative 'Cespuglio' table lamp (1968) is designed by Ennio Lucini for Harvey Guzzini DH. This lighting object has a hauntingly mesmerizing light that draws the beholder's eye. The construction features an aluminum base inserted with jagged sheets of acrylic. The fins encircle the light bulb which is located at the center. The light shines through the sheets and highlights their outer edges. In Italian 'Cespuglio' means bush, and this lamp definitely gives off the look and feel of an enchanted forest. The use of a bright color and acrylic sheets in this design places it in the Pop Art era, reminiscent of the contemporaneous experimentation of avant-garde sculptors. This lamp is a great example of the technical advances in lamp design in Italy, starting in the late 1950s. It represents an imaginative response to the availability of translucent plexiglass sheets. The use of plexiglass opened a whole new range of possibilities in the field of lamp design. The material has the transparent quality of glass, while at the same time being less fragile and therefore less dangerous in use. It also has a very specific way of transmitting the light, which appears to be passing through the sheet slower than through glass. Not to forget, the simple formability is a great benefit that allows the designer to create various constellations. The Cespuglio lamp is a highly innovative piece of lighting with a strong sense of three-dimensionality and spatiality.
