This lamp, produced by the great Italian lighting company Flos, was designed in 1971 by the design legend ACHILLE CASTIGLIONI (1918-2002). Created to celebrate the opening of the Flos showroom in Torino, Lampadina is the Italian word for lightbulb. What makes Lampadina unique is its custom built sandblasted bulb, with a shaded side to protect you from any glare. Lampadina sits on a base made from an old film reel that houses the electrical switch and stores extra cord.

The brilliance of this lamp is in the design of the custom bulb, which lasts a long time but can be ordered here should you ever need another one. The lamp with the included bulb is about 9.5" high by 5" in diameter. Use it on a table or a wall by simply hanging it by the hole on the bottom of the film reel.
