Appearing to be straight out of a futuristic scene in a film, the Globe, by world recognized Joe Colombo, is a great addition to any modern home or office.
The table lamp is available with both direct and diffused light, which create enough light for a specific task and area. The illumination, not only is strong enough to brighten the desired surface space on a table, is also enough to light the surrounding area.
The internal turned metal reflector is finished with plated nickel, as is the base. The satinised last step in the production gives the Globe its futuristic look. One of four available versions of the Globe, including the Globe 827 and 828, which are hanging versions, and also the Globe 727, which is a lamp wall fixture, the 228 gives the room a presence that can only be given from the surface of a desk.
The studious and attention grabbing lamp was produced in 2015 from blown glass and metal from one of the most influential Italian designers. Joe Colombo is fortunately still a very heard and talked about name in the industrial design field, though he passed in 1971. The Globe 228 is one of his many attributions to society and to the world of interior design.
Not only does the Globe 228 encompass the visionary inspiration that Colombo strived for, it also portrays the timelessness of his work, being still popular and very much in touch with modern design over forty years after his untimely death. The influence Colombo had on the interior design and architectural community is astounded and cannot be matched. Very much like the design of the Globe 228, Colombo introduces us to a lamp that is as timeless as he is.
“Established in 1945 by the master Giuseppe Ostuni, Oluce is the oldest Italian lighting design company that is still active today. They have had great success throughout their history by winning many prestigious design awards.”
