Sale price$13,800.00

Sergio Asti for Martinelli Luce, ‘Profiterole’, floor or table lamp, model ‘640’, fiberglass, plastic, Lucca, Italy, early edition, 1968

A captivating fusion of both functionality and artistic expression, the Profiterole lamp, crafted by the Italian designer Sergio Asti (1926-2021) for Martinelli Luce, hovers at the intersection of a practical lighting fixture and objet d’art. Drawing inspiration from the delightful small round pastries filled with cream, the lamp's three-dimensional voluminous form features an embossed ‘blown-up’ surface. Constructed primarily from fiberglass, the lamp exhibits soft and organic shapes, enhanced by a black plastic ring that seamlessly connects its two components. The ingenious use of plastics and the whimsical, biomorphic aura of its design firmly situates the Profiterole lamp within the artistic landscape of the Pop Art era.
