This pair of nickel plated and Italian glass lamps boasts all the elegance and ingenuity of the most luxurious range Artemide ever produced, the second wave of early pieces, at the verge of antique craftsmanship and the post-industrial electrical lighting.  The shades have a slight frosting with a thin textured volume, and cast a convivial light. It is the kind of precious Italian glass you would find on early pieces by Gio Ponti for Fontana Arte. The nickel plating of the tulip shaped base was an art deco favorite before the more affordable chrome became the norm. The nickel gives a much deeper and smoother reflective texture. These light pieces are closer to jewelry than industrial design.

Artemide was founded in Milan by Ernesto Gismondi and Sergio Mazza in 1960. The cult Italian lighting company is synonymous with quality build and timeless design. Artemide has consistently pushed the boundaries with the most important designers like Vico Magistretti, Ettore Sottsass, Gae Aulenti, Mario Bellini, Angelo Mangiarotti, Sergio Asti, Ernesto Gismondi, Michele De Lucchi, Ron Rezek, Enzo Mari, Mario Botta, Richard Sapper, Rodolfo Dordoni, Cini Boeri, Studio Tetrarch (Adelaide Bonati, Enrico De Munari and Carla Federspiel), Gianfranco Frattini and Livio Cadtiglioni, B.B.P.R, Leonardo Ferrari and Franco Lazzucchelli Tartaglino, Anna Fasolis, Masayuki Kurokawa, Giancarlo Fassina, Ross Lovegrove, Carlo Forcolini and Naoto Fukasawa.
