An archetypal lampshade balanced on a tilted stem. Simple elements, exquisitely combined into an amazing geometric composition, recall basic forms matched with different materials for technological reasons. Despite its plain and simple look, this lamp clearly conveys the skills of Artemide. The lampshade is a lightweight plastic volume closed by two diffusers that produce a pleasant soft direct and indirect light. The joint connects the lampshade with the aluminum stem on a minimal support. These simple elements are combined into a plain and elegant object, where the tilted stem is counterbalanced by the lampshade’s volume.

Upholding Italy's reputation for excellence and innovation in design, Artemide is a world leader in contemporary lighting. Offering both residential and commercial lighting solutions, Artemide has made forward thinking a company policy. Instantly recognizable designs originating from the 1960's, when Artemide was founded by Ernesto Gismondi, are still in production today along side contemporary lighting creations by current acclaimed designers. Artemide's expansive catologue ranges from the organic and elegant Logico collection to the clean and simple spheres of the Castore family. Many of the most iconic products of history can be found here.
The Artemide Group is much more than lighting. A core element of the manufacturer is their commitment to ethical conduct and social responsibility. A progressive environmental policy is also a major element in both production methods and technology research. What Artemide is most widely known for however, is a coined design philosophy that defines the company's approach: the Human Light Philosophy. Thoughtfully considering the user's lifestyle, daily activities and investment in home, Human Light sets out to provide an illuminated companion, rather than just simply illumination. Lights that are adaptable, flexible and allow for optimum visual precision while conserving environmental resources are Human Lights. A light that accompanies us during our daily activities and has a tangible effect on our well being, emotional health and ultimately our quality of life is Artemide.
Artemide La Petite Table Lamp Designed by:
- Quaglio Simonelli
Quaglio Simonelli is the creation of two dynamic talents Andrea Quaglio and Manuela Simonelli , both graduates of the Università del Progetto, in Reggio Emilia. Their studio is based in Paris. After their debut and and their two years collaboration with Philippe Starck, they founded their own design studio dedicated to provide design services to several sectors of the marketplace, beliving that diversity is a source of creative richness. They design technology products, create furniture and decorative objects, conceive the visual identity and product design for beauty brands, alternating industrial logic and artisanal approach. The result of the meeting between two complementary sensibilities has been nourished by their history, by their creative gaze they direct on the world that surrounds them and by the mutation they love to induce on it. In this way, they design objects that look familiar, yet contaminated with unexpected and poetic elements.
They have received several international awards for their designs:
- Red Dot Product Design Award
- IF Product Design Award
- CES Innovation Award
- HKDA Award, Kapok Prize
- Étoile de l’Observeur
- Janus de l’Industrie
- Several products they designed are now part of the collection of the National Foundation for Contemporary Art at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris.
