Vintage chromed floor lamp with faded glass spheres



Design doesn’t need a name to be good. There is plenty of objects out there – chairs, lamps, tables… – that are “anonymous” but look like they were created by one of the greatest designers. This lamp makes the perfect case: we don’t know anything about it, except for the fact that it was made in the seventies and most likely in Italy.

It is, however, gorgeous in its own rights. The original and perfectly preserved glass balls fade from white to transparent, creating a nice effect even when the lamp is turned off. Its twelve lights provide enough light to liven up even large rooms. The chrome coating is preserved in very good condition, with just the minor fading and patina expectable on an object of this age. The lights work perfectly and have recently been replaced.
