This is an out-of-this-world vintage 1950s era space age mid-century desk or table lamp in the style of the iconic Stilnovo Italian experimental functional design house. This lamp is attributed to the French designer Pierre Guariche. It is made up of three main metal components, the up-light, the reflector shade, and the tripod leg base. The legs are a black matte metal with patinated brass hardware, and they support a "floating" blue painted up-light that shines toward the amazing mushroom shaped cream-white reflector shade. The shade is open at the top, allowing a bit of diffused light to flow through the opening as well as reflect outwards as a soft redirected light.
The lamp is in good vintage condition with age-appropriate wear, namely some wear to the interior of the shade. There is very little paint loss present on the lamp. It has functional wiring.
The shade measures approx 12 inches in diameter. The base is about 7 inches wide and 11 inches deep. It stands about 17 inches tall.
