Designed in 1977 by Vico Magistretti for Oluce, the Atollo table lamp is an iconic, enduring classic of Italian design. As part of the MOMA Collection, it really is a work of art, a perfectly poised geometric sculpture with timeless appeal. I’ve admired it in black lacquer and white opaline Murano glass for years, but I hadn’t paid much attention to the gold lacquered version. That is, until I saw the striking gold Atollo lamp in the Hong Kong apartment designed by Ilse Crawford (which I recently blogged about). It’s just been added to my fantasy furnishings wish list.
