View Slideshow

Marco Zanuso designed the 275 lamp between 1963 and 1965 and the lamp is about to make a comeback thanks to Zanuso’s heirs and Oluce. The large domed opal PMMA shade is attached to a curved arm that can swing around to a desired position which helps to give reflected and diffused light.
