Matteo Thun 'Palm Spring' Floor Lamp in Aluminum
Matteo Thun and Maurizo Favetta, 'Palm Spring' floor lamp, aluminum and metal, Italy, 1990
Postmodern 'Palm Spring' floor lamp, designed by Matteo Thun and Maurizio Favetta in 1990. Thun’s work is driven by the search for sophistication and subtle irony, with this model being an example of this. The rhythm of the multiple stacked aluminum shades reminds of the trunk of a palm.
Matteo Thun was an associate of the Memphis design group in the early 1980s. The exciting postmodern ideas of these years were influential in his subsequent career.
