Mario Botta for Artemide, 'Shogun' table lamp, metal, Italy, 1986
Mario Botta referred to lamps as “people”. He said “Shogun is a person. He has a head, body and feet, plus he has a navel.” The designer is known for his use of geometric forms throughout his designs. Also the “Shogun” table lamp convinces in shape and bicolored design. A stem with black and white stripes holds a lightbulb that is surrounded by two curved shades. The white metal shade is perforated with small, rectangular gaps that create a wonderful play of shadows. Two handles allow the user to change the shade it their angle.
Mario Botta (1943-) first attended the Art College in Milan and then studied at the University Institute of Architecture in Venice, directed by Carlo Scarpa and Giuseppe Mazzariol. He received his professional degree in 1969. Botta always committed himself in an intense architectural research and since 1996 he is involved as creator and founder of the new Academy of Architecture in Ticino.
