Eclisse is an iconic table lamp disegned by Vico Magistretti that won the prestigious Compasso d’Oro award in 1967.
The concept’s foundation lies in its functionality of adjusting the intensity of light through its rotating inner shade that “eclipses” the light source. In fact, with a fixed outer shell and a moveable inner shell the lamp can provide direct or diffuse light.
Eclisse is part of the permanent collection of the most important design Museums, amongst many the MoMa in New York and the Triennale Design Museum in Milan.
Founded in 1960 by Ernesto Gismondi, Artemide is an Italian company based in Pregnana Milanese that produces high-end lighting.
