"Atollo" lamp...

He talks so well, what can you do?
It's pretty plain, he means it too
I don't want to sell you lines
I only mean to do you right
But I'm a simple slave of appetite
I'm a poor slave of appetite

"Designed by Vico Magistretti for O-Luce in 1977. Vico Magistretti named this lamp "Atollo" which translates into "Island" from Italian. Table lamp in black lacquered metal (aluminum) giving direct light. The base comprises a cylinder on which a cone is mounted, the diffuser is a half-circular cap.

Thanks to Vico Magistretti's know-how these three geometric elements become a modern classic while reasoning on abstract compositional components. The Atollo lamp has a dimmer switch.
