This striking floor lamp was designed in the mid-1960s by master glassmaker Albano Poli for his company Poliarte. In addition to the obvious basic function of providing light, this object has a decorative value that the maestro predominates in many of his designs.

Design

We see a large number of rectangular pieces of Murano glass of all different lengths. These are meticulously glued together and follow a complex pattern that ensures that the ends are aligned with each other. The result, viewed close-up, is a beautiful relief that seems to have an extra dimension due to the charming bubbles trapped in the glass. When we observe the lamp from a little more distance, it radiates an impressive grandeur as a glass tower.

Five light sources are placed approximately twenty centimeters apart by means of an ingenious fixture consisting of a tube construction of chrome-plated brass. All parts of this fixture can be dismantled allowing for a lamp to be replaced when necessary. The glass part is anchored on a heavy base that is finished with an aluminum shade.

After igniting the lamps by pressing the button on the foot switch, a true spectacle takes hold of the space. Through the so-called frozen glass, the light spreads diffusely through the Murano parts and shines on the surroundings. This effect is enhanced by the reflection of the light on the aluminum base and reflection on the chrome-plated fixture. As a result, a warm glow fills the room.

Condition

This lamp is in good condition and only has minimal signs of use.

I recently bought some amazing Artwork from AtKris Studio online. The whole experience was amazing. The transaction was amazingly efficient. The crating and shipping of the artwork to the United States from the Netherlands could not have gone smoother and the customer service was spot on!!  Krista was amazing and I highly recommend AtKris Studio!
