Coupé Arched Floor Lamp

by Joe Colombo

In Stock


The Coupé series, designed by Joe Colombo in 1967 for Oluce includes the Arched Floor lamp. The lamp's revolving and height adjustable chromium-plated arc provides a simple, ingenious mechanism that connects the stem to the head and makes it possible to direct the beam in several directions, by moving the dome up, down and sideways. In 1968, Coupé won the ”International Design Award” of the American Institute of Interior Designers in Chicago. It is part of the permanent collection at both the MoMA in New York and the ”Neue Sammlung” Museum in Munich. Coupé has become one of the most renowned and appreciated Oluce collections. The floor lamp is available in two versions, with either a semi-cylindrical or a semi-spherical dome and two colors, black or white.

Oluce is the oldest Italian design company in the lighting sector still in operation today. Oluce lighting’s design aesthetic is crisp, linear, and decorative. A subtle, intellectual beauty that over the years has led the company to produce some of the more recognizable and admired iconic lighting in the world. Its lamps appear in the most important permanent design collections worldwide.
