More whimsical and expressionist than its sleek cousin Arco (LOT 25), the Snoopy table lamp is design classic in its own right. Jony and Marc included two examples of the Castiglionis' work in this sale because they are among the most influential designers of our time; their objects, copied innumerable times, transcend their purpose and become icons, and have been.  Originally designed in 1967, Snoopy provides direct light through a thick glass disc and an enamelled reflector, both of which balance on a white marble base.
