Table Lamp 597
Gianfranco Frattini, masterful architect and designer, was one of the trailblazers of the golden era of Italian design. Frattini was concerned principally with interiors and industrial design. He was an assiduous participant in shows and exhibitions and his design projects won a large number of prizes. In 1956 Frattini was one of the founders of the ADI, Association of Industrial design, for which he carried out a lot of different activities. His presence was habitually felt at congresses, conventions and furniture fairs all over the world. Frattini designed the table lamp 597 for Arteluce in 1961. A central aluminium conical shaped base holds multiple light bu which are behind a curtain of ivory rayon. On top sits another light bulb inside the crater-shaped form.The decorative element of the fringe is a hint to the traditional lampshade. The base is made of black enameled aluminium and has small round orb feet.
