The Uovo was designed by Ben Swildens in 1972.

The Uovo ia a natural form and timeless symbol of perfection, in which symmetry and asymmetry harmoniously coexist.

The ‘shell’ of the egg contained a light source: an ironic idea that still works today. As in nature, the shell of the Uovo lamp is the embodiment of absolute lightness, an elegant form in white satin blown glass that gives off a warm, uniform light.

The Uovo is a Outdoor table or floor lamp with dimmable diffused light. Opal satin white polyethylene diffuser made with rotational molding. Stainless steel frame. Black power cord. Schuko plug. Light source and dimmer not included.

SIZE: Ø43cm x 62cm
