Nesso – Artemide

During the late sixties, in 1967, Giancarlo Mattioli created a very unusual lamp for that time in collaboration with Gruppo Architetti Urbanisti Città Nuova, the so-called “Nesso”.

In Italy it’s produced by Artemide. It spreads diffused incandescent lighting and it is made of ABS thermoplastic.

Nesso became very famous and important indeed it is shown in various museums like the MoMa in New York and the Triennale in Milan.

It is available both in orange and white. It has a kind of mushroom  shape.
