Product Description

The Arco lamp has been in continuous production since 1962 and is now considered a design classic. One of the unique features of this design is that every part has a function including the beveled corners (designed not to hurt) and the hole for easier lifting of the base.

On a side note, this lamp has made its appearance in the entertainment world appearing in the James Bond sequel, "Diamonds Are Forever" and "The Italian Job".

Inspiration Behind the Design: The Castiglioni brothers loved to play around with designs that were both technically innovative & visually appealing. Taking inspiration from a mere streetlight, the brothers wanted to create a lamp that people did not have to walk around. For this to work, the base had to be at least two meters away from the actual light. They used commercially available parts and found that curved steel angle iron worked perfectly with their design. They opted for a marble base as a counterweight instead of concrete because the same weight took up less space, and also because they could obtain a better finish for a lower cost.
