Adjustable, arched Coupé floor lamp with semi-spherical stove lacquered aluminium reflector, chrome armature, and lacquered metal base. Designed by Joe Colombo and produced by Oluce, circa 1967. A sophisticated design that is complex to manufacture, the lamp features a grooved shaft with a bakelite handle for adjusting the height and pivoting the armature. The reflector is fitted with a joint to adjust its inclination. The base is rounded but straight at the back, for flush fitting against the wall, where it can rotate through 180 degrees, changing how a floor lamp functions as an element of space design. This is a rare, the only one for sale that I know of, example in dark blue lacquer from the original production run, circa 1967. The lamp was re-issued in 2002 by Oluce, but only in black or white.
