    Oluce Atollo Table Lamp with Glass Shade. The opal glass Atollo table lamp is easily the most beautiful lamp and truly a work of art. This stylish all-glass edition of the Atollo Table Lamp features a satin white (opaline opaque) glass diffuser shade and lamp base. Oluce manufactures the Atollo's out of mouth blown glass. Each table lamp is equipped with several light bulbs: the shade section contains two light bulbs and the base cylinder a separate light bulb. This allows the Atollo to be illuminated from within like a sculpture of light. Atollo creates direct downward lighting but also diffused lighting through its glass lampshade and base. The light is soft and indirect making it a perfect atmosphere light when relaxing mood illumination is required. The Atollo Table Lamp (models 235/236/237) 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. The Oluce Atollo Lamp is a perfectly scaled lamp for a coffee table, bedside or intimate settings. With its luminous look and sleek curves, Atollo is a stylish complement to any modern interior. Each lamp is outfitted with a dimmer on the cord which allows Atollo to be dimmed to a soft glow. Select from three sizes.

    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 recognize 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.
