Mini Coupé Table Lamp

In Stock


The Mini Coupé, a smaller scale version of the Iconic lamp designed by Joe Colombo for Oluce in 1967 is the 2021 addition to the family. It's available in a stunning new contemporary range of 4 new colors (lacquered black, anodic bronze, scarlet red and mustard yellow). At 13.4″ in height, the Mini Coupé wittily maintains all the vigor common to Joe Colombo’s designs of the 60s. The Mini Coupé, with its chrome stem and semi-cylindrical shade, retains the distinctive profile and bold character which define the Coupé collection and which have always made it an exceptionally modern lighting range, now even more complete. The simple, ingenious mechanism that connects the stem to the head 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.

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.
