Sculptural space age 'Poliedra' lamp by Italian architect Felice Ragazzo for Harvey Guzzini from 1969. We can rightfully call this lamp an architectural tour de force. It consists of 7 separate parts that are characterized in geometry as polyhedra. That is a three-dimensional shape with flat polygonal surfaces, sharp edges, and corners.
The architect Felice Ragazzo developed the "Progetto Poliedra" which consisted of three components called octahedron, pentahedron, and tetrahedron. These can not only be combined with each other in many ways but are also very flexible in the user application. For example, gigantic chandeliers are known because you can combine and vary endlessly with this shape. Although the lamp we show here is a floor lamp, it can just as well serve as a chandelier or sculptural table lamp.
The material of the construction is a chromed brass wire that can be easily connected with small clips to create the desired shape of the lamp. The light sources consist of six silver-coloured light bulbs, each of which can be easily detached by pulling out the plug on the back. These lamps can then be positioned freely and easily clicked into place. All these lamps are connected with a coiled cord to an aluminium sphere that hangs beautifully in the middle of one of the polyhedra. There are crown stone modules in the sphere, which can also be adjusted. For example, if you would like to remove a lamp from the setup.
The condition of this lamp is near-perfect and there are few traces of use. The lamp is clearly marked.
