History of the arc lamp
“We thought of a lamp that projected light onto the table: there were already some of them, but you had to pass the lamp from behind. In order for the lamp to allow sufficient space around the table, the base had to be at least two meters away from the table. Thus the idea of the bow was born”- Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, 1962
The modern floor lamp has however an interesting history behind it.
The light has been designed since 1945. The designers are the brothers Castiglioni, who together developed the supermoderne arc light. The idea for the structure and the design came from the street lighting. The brothers wanted to adapt this kind of street lighting as room lighting. In contrast to the street lanterns, the lantern is not firmly fixed to the ground and is able to illuminate several meters in the circumference. The structure is fixed with a heavy marble block. Original is the block with rounded corners and a total weight of 65 kg. The attractive stand consists of three parts that are telescopically inserted into each other. The wiring is also located in the tubes
