Vico Magistretti designed the Eclisse light in the 1960s. The Italian architect and designer is known for his popular furniture and products, produced for prominent brands including Artemide, Cassina, Fritz Hansen, and Kartell.
The petite light was envisioned as a lamp for a bedside table, but can also be wall-mounted. Users can rotate the hemispherical inner shade to control light intensity and direction, creating an 'eclipse' effect in the process.
The light is typically available in white, orange, or gray. For the holiday season, Artemide has reissued the light in a festive red color, which is available only at the brand's showrooms in Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Montreal, and Toronto.
When it was introduced in 1967, Eclisse won the Compasso d’Oro, the esteemed Italian award that recognizes outstanding industrial design.
The red version of the lamp is available for the month of December for 149 USD or 169 CAD.
