Design Classic: Atollo Table Lamp

For many years now, Atollo has no longer been a lamp, or rather, it has no longer been just a lamp. It has become a myth, an icon: one of the best known symbols of Italian design wordwide, one of the very few products which people recognise and call with its own name.

Designed in 1977 by Vico Magistretti, over the years, Atollo has become the archetype of the table lamp, winning the Compasso d’Oro in 1979 and completely revolutionising the way we imagine the classic bedside lamp.

The geometric shapes that compose it – cylinder, cone and hemisphere – have resulted in a product that is decorative and essential at the same time, disconnected from the historical period and the fashions of the moment – a luminous sculpture from which nothing can be removed to which nothing can be added. And which nothing can copy.
