Medusa 254 Table Lamp

In Stock


Andrea Quaglio and Manuela Simonelli, professionally Quaglio-Simonelli, for years focused on the design of furnishing products and more, designed the Medusa, a glass table lamp, born from the elementary principle of incorporating a metal dome into a cylinder : the dome contains the light source and the glass cylinder delicately distributes the light on the support surface of the lamp.
In the Medusa table lamp, the relationship between support and lampshade is reversed. The support does not support the lampshade but contains it. The dome, seat of the light source, remains suspended in the cylinder thanks to an elegant fold of the glass which allows for a formal cleanliness of great refinement. The electric cable completes the design, descending free from the center of the diffuser and in a play of reflections it seems to sway, giving a sense of lightness to the whole lamp. Formal cleanliness for a soft and warm light. The Medusa is available in three color variants: glossy black, satin gold, scarlet red.

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.
