Zanuso 275 Table Lamp Information:
Zanuso 275 Table Lamp by Oluce. Table lamp giving diffused and reflected light. Opal PMMA cover rotating on the base. Curved support and painted metal base. On/off power switch. Marco Zanuso (1916-2001) was without doubt one of the protagonists of the "long century" that led Italy from the destruction of war to absolute primacy in design. Several types of product were revolutionised by the intervention of Zanuso: armchairs have not been the same since 1951 with the Lady for Arflex, the precursor application of foam rubber; televisions, improbable machines, suddenly transformed, in 1969, into elegant mysterious forms with the "Black" for Brionvega and so on for telephones, with the "Grillo", radios, with "Cubo", glass tables, with the "Mancuso", chairs, with the "Lambda", made of sheet metal but in actual fact recognised as the ancestor of all contemporary moulded plastic chairs.

Zanuso did, however, design a small number of lamps. Among them, a masterpiece: the Oluce 275. Designed between 1963 and 1965, the 275 was conceived as a desk lamp. Note that it is not intended as an operational lamp, but rather to solve the lighting problem on a work table placed in an environment that is not necessarily an office. That is the reason behind the large methacrylate dome supported by a curved arm, but above all the unpredictable kinematic mechanism, at the limits of static. In fact from the initial folded position where the diffuser is superimposed on the circular base, with practically the same diameter, one rotation brings it to an eccentric position. On one side, there remains the circumference of the base, on the other that of the head: the effect is particularly marked when the structure is painted black, thus creating one black circle and one white, illuminated circle on the table.

Today, the 275 is "seeing the light" again, represented in a philological way also thanks to collaboration with Zanuso's heirs. Iconic in its form, it can be used not only at desks, but in general on all sizes of table, its primary role being to light a portion of a room. Its message is identical to that of the original, but loaded with an additional component: memory, and nostalgia, for a unique character on the stage of world design. Zanuso 275 Table Lamp by Oluce are designed by Marco Zanuso.

Oluce Lighting
About Oluce Company
Oluce was established in 1945 by the master Giuseppe Ostuni. Oluce is one of the oldest Italian lighting company's that is still working today. Some of the earlier works by Gio Ponti in 1954 was a new floor lamp ''Agnoli'' a spot light supported on a stem with the absence of a lamp shade. In the 1960 Joe Colombo collaborated with Oluce on several award winning design like the Spider, Fresnel and Coupe which 1967 won the first ''Compasso d'oro'' award for Oluce. This was also the first time the idea of a "lamp family" was presented with the Spider model. In 1972 Oluce released the Colombo desk lamp, the first halogen table light.

Through the change of ownership at Oluce, Vico Magistretti became art director for many years and continued the company tradition of unmistakable design which lead to the birth of the Atollo, Lester, Sonora, Pascal, Lyndon, Piazza San Marco and Dim. The complete collection includes Laterna, Fiore, Bianca, Drop, Diamond, Can-Led, Nerolia, Pin Stripe, Teda and Stones of Glass.
