Nanda Vigo, table lamp 'Trigger of the Space', mirror, glass, Italy, 1974

This sculptural table lamp is designed by one of the most visionary artists of postwar Italy, Nanda Vigo. The given title 'Trigger of Space' already reveals the multiple layers this design is referring to. Characteristic for Vigo’s work and also reflected in the ‘Trigger of the Space’ lamp is her approach of tackling the relationship between space and light. The geometric appearance and the use of mirrored glass and steel resembles in a lamp that interferes with its surrounding. Through a downwards pointed triangle with opaline glass the light is softly partitioned. When switched off the lamp looks more like an artefact. 

Nanda Vigo (1936-2020), an interdisciplinary and one of the most visionary postwar Italian artists, graduated from the Institut Polytechnique in Lausanne before opening her own studio in Milan in 1959. Ever since the 1960s, Vigo worked in an objective language in which her main concepts was the conflicting relationship of light and space. Keywords like immateriality, transparency and light are words which most likely come to your mind when tackling her work. From 1958 onwards, Vigo worked with names such as Gio Ponti, Piero Manzoni and Enrico Castellani. Another group that Vigo was closely related to was the ZERO Group. Thanks to them her work was exhibited worldwide and she was awarded with multiple prizes.
