Gae Aulenti was a very versatile and talented architect who undoubtedly occupied an illustrious position in the history of design. An alumna of Politecnico di Milano, she has completed a series of prestigious projects during her long career spanning more than fifty years. For example, Aulenti was responsible for redesigning the Musée d'Orsay and creating a space for the Musée National d'Art Moderne in the Center Pompidou in Paris.In addition to these projects of an architectural nature, Aulenti has managed to leave a mark in the world of interior design with a multitude of furniture, lamps and objects. Many of these objects starred as backdrops in films and advertisements. Take, for example, the Locus Solus garden set in the 1969 classic La Piscine with Alain Delon, Romy Schneider and a young Jane Birkin. This will be an indelible memory for a design-loving audience.

Design

Aulenti made this table lamp called Poveglia for Vetreria Vistosi. An Italian manufacturer specializing in decorative lighting made of blown glass. The lamp consists of two separate parts. The round and transparent base, which is marked on the inside with a blue made in Italy label, has a notch. A yellow hood is attached to the base by a cold connection and shows a beautiful murrine drawing.This murrine technique is one of the most complicated and time-consuming techniques.The artist first coats a center rod with a variety of colorful glass liquids. This rod exhibits rainbow cross sections when thin parts are sliced transversely. The blown and formed objects are rolled over these cross sections while they are still hot. These cross sections are arranged on a surface. The rainbow fragments adhere to the object's surface, giving it a remarkably attractive appearance. All around the world, murrine glasses are highly prized and appreciated. Another name for it is "millefiori".

Condition

The condition of the lamp is very good and has an E27 fitting.
