Ernesto Gismondi for Artemide Table Lamp 'Sintesi' in Red
Ernesto Gismondi for Artemide, table lamp, model 'Sintesi', first edition, Cornalux bulb included, coated iron, coated metal, aluminum, rubber, plastic, Italy, 1976
The founder of Artemide, Ernesto Gismondi (1931-2020), designed the lighting series 'Sintesi' in 1976. This first edition desk lamp is highly functional as the light can be adjusted in any preferred direction. You can either change the position of the lamp shade or modify the position of the arm by moving it forwards or backwards. In the first release of the lamp, Gismondi utilized the renowned Cornalux bulb (B22-75 watt); however, due to objections concerning its elevated expense, he eventually adopted a different bulb and incorporated an aluminum cap to combat glare. Characteristic detail is the grid consisting of bent iron rods. The red and black colors emphasize the lamp's modern and sleek appearance. Gismondi made several variations of the Sintesi lamp objects that can be found in the design collection of the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
