Tahiti Lamp from the Memphis Collection | Ettore Sottsass

 

Designed in 1981, Ettore Sottsass’ Tahiti lamp is still absolutely a classic piece of Italian design.  Made in plastic and metal what makes this lamp precious aren’t its materials, but the creativity of its unconventional duck shape and amazing color combination. This design object will not only brighten your night, but also make an entire room shine with a touch of design history.

Ettore Sottsass, legendary Italian designer founded the Memphis Group in 1980 with other top designers.  The Tahiti lamp is a Sottsass masterpiece and can be considered a symbol of the entire Memphis Collection and its post-modernist style which was so distant from the rationalism of the 1970s.  Unconventional materials, historic forms and kitsch motifs are the common features of the work produced by the Memphis Group and the Tahiti lamp epitomizes all these characteristics.
