This rare lamp is one of only a few known existent examples of Gio Ponti’s Proteo lamp. The elegant arcs of the tiered sheet metal shade elements provide a soft gradual dispersal of light and gracefully echo the curved arm of the vivid base. Executed in the late 1960s, the lamp is an example of Ponti’s architectonic forms and is an important model produced by Sagim, a small lighting company in the Veneto region, Italy.

The lot is sold together with a certificate of expertise from the Gio Ponti Archives
