Artemide Nesso Table Lamp by Giancarlo Mattioli. The Nesso Lamp is a classic icon in the history of modern space age design and a Stardust Staff Pick. An expressive table lamp that combines the sinuous curves of 1960s design with the minimalist sensibilities of timeless modernism. The stunning Nesso Lamp was designed by the Italian designer Giancarlo Mattioli for Artemide back in 1967. According to design historian Lucia Fontana; its dimple is said to have been inspired by "l'ombelico di una bella donna"; the sensuous shape of beautiful Italian woman's belly button...you be the judge! This lamp has been in continuous production by Artemide for the last 40 plus years. Artemide's Nesso Lamp features a body and diffuser made of injection molded ABS thermoplastic, available in either white or orange. The Nesso Lamp provides a beautiful direct and diffused light; just turn it on and watch the whole thing glow. It looks absolutely wonderful during daytime or at night! Part of the Artemide Modern Classics product line, made by Artemide in Italy. As one of our most beloved design lamps, you just cannot go wrong with Nesso! Stardust will include 4 complimentary light bulbs with your purchase of the Artemide Nesso Lamp! Sourcing the right light bulbs can be a time-consuming task so we are more than happy to include the required bulbs with your Nesso.
