A former member of the Memphis design movement based in Italy in the 1980s, Ferruccio Laviani has a history of incorporating bold forms and classical references into his designs. The Bourgie Table Lamp (2003) continues in this vein, with a baroque silhouette uniquely executed in polycarbonate, one of the 21st century's most popular modern materials. A special coupling system on the lampshade allows the lamp to be assembled at three different heights (26.75"/28.75"/30.75") without requiring the use of any tools. Simply lift the shade off the lamp and add or remove as many spacers necessary to adjust the height. Choose the height that suits your need, and modify it to another height at a later time. When lit, the lampshade shows mysterious refractions of light. The precision-cut base is little more than a three-sided, scrolling outline, compact enough for worktops, side tables and nightstands. Bulbs (included): three Incandescent 40W/120V/E14/torpedo. Made in Italy.
