    Oluce Atollo 233 Table Lamp by Vico Magistretti. Illuminate your living room, bedroom or office with the sleek styling and ample light offered by this contemporary modern table lamp. The Oluce Atollo Lamp is one of our favourite pieces of modern design and a true classic. The Oluce Atollo is an icon of Italian lighting design and an symbol of modern design worldwide. The Atollo Table Lamp Model 233 was designed by Vico Magistretti in 1977 and was awarded the Compasso d'Oro in 1979. Atollo is one of the best known design classics as seen in numerous musea around the globe. Atollo's lamp shade appears to almost float in mid-air. A circular lacquered metal base base anchors the lamp with stylish appeal, while a sweeping metal dome-shaped shade rises up to meet the lamp holder that houses the bulb. The diffuser reflects light back onto the base, providing an interplay of light and shadow that makes this lamp even more distinctive. Atollo provides a soft glowing reflected light, that gives your home a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The iconic Italian style makes the Atollo a beautiful addition to any room in need of an additional lighting source. The beautiful Oluce Atollo 233 Table Lamp by Vico Magistretti is available in either white or black.

    For many years now, Atollo has no longer been a lamp, or rather, it has no longer been just a lamp. It has become a myth, an icon: one of the best know symbols of Italian design wordwide, one of the very few products which people recognise and call with its own name. Designed by Vico Magistretti in 1977, it was awarded the Compasso d'Oro in 1979 and became, since then, part of the permanent collections of the world's major museum of design, as well as part of the furniture of many homes of those who love and are able to select the things surrounding them. Atollo's secret probably lies in the geometrical construction of its shapes: the cone on the cylinder and the semisphere above all. A luminous sculpture from which nothing can be removed to which nothing can be added. And which nothing can copy.

    Vico Magistretti began designing at the end of the 40s, but spent most of the 50s involved in architecture. He then returned to design (by far the majority being furniture) at the end of the 50s and has continued since then. He was educated in a time of architectural rationalism and so was taught to think logically, a lot of importance being placed on using architecture to solve social problems. In particular; the use of pre-fabrication was advocated. He was always more involved in industrial design for mass production than in one off pieces, but unlike some similar products, he designed his furniture to last. This all leads to his designs tending to be simple but effective solutions to a problem. However, he kept them quite informal by adding a bit of fun; perhaps this was a natural reaction against the austerity of wartime conditions. Although this is all true, he managed to make his designs innovative and stylish with elegant lines and quality finishes. Magistretti remained consistent in his approach to his work, but continued to react to current trends and issues and was always willing to test new materials and come up with new solutions. His designs have contributed significantly to the success of Italian design.
