Gae Aulenti for Artemide, table lamp, model 'Patroclo', hand blown glass, steel, Italy, 1975

The 'Patroclo' table light clearly demonstrates Gae Aulenti's studies in graphic design and architecture, with geometric formalism and specific choice of materials as outcome. The glass is blown within the irregular rhomboid steel grid, which produces an embossed surface. As the diffused light escapes the wired construction, the grid pattern is projected into the environment, extending the aura of the lamp.

Gae Aulenti (1927-2012) was an Italian designer and architect. In 1954, she graduated at the Milan School of Architecture of the Polytechnic University and was only one of two women from her class of 20. Aulenti is mostly known for her large scale museum projects such as her work for the Musée d’Orsay and Centre Pompidou in Paris, and Palazzo Grassi in Venice. Aulenti was at the forefront of Italian post-war design. Her design was meant to make connections with both history and future of Italy. The postmodern movement that Aulenti belonged to refused to design in the objective language of the modernists. This Avant Garde Postmodern design movement was the beginning of a new type of Italian art, architecture and design.
