Roberto Gabetti & Aimaro Isola Floor Lamp 'Bul-Bo'


Roberto Gabetti and Aimaro Isola for Ar.Bo, floor lamp 'Bul-Bo', leather, metal, rubber, Italy, 1970s

Gabetti & Isola accomplished a very unique design with the 'Bul-Bo' for Ar.Bo. A black leather sack is functioning as the base for the long metal bow with the light bulb at its end. The light bulb is integrated in a metal plate with round gaps which is adjustable in its angle. With the combination of the silver metal and the black leather this playful design gets a strong appearance.

Roberto Gabetti (Turin, November 29, 1925 - Turin, December 5, 2000) was an Italian architect and university professor. Along with Aimaro Isola he opened an architectural office, studio Gabetti Island, and continues intensively in the following decades with a focus on technological experimentation. From there on they developed this interesting, hard to find floor lamp.
