Lamp design for Flos (1971-1972)



Level of archival description:
Extent and medium:
  • 5 drawings
    1 sketchbook
Scope and content:
The project series comprises study sketches, drawings, and brief notes related to the design for the lamp "Misura", a prototype made for Superstudio by Flos in 1971. The accompanying notes refer to a checkered design on a tilting white board, with the light filtering through and transforming this into a transparent surface. Poli identifies 16 pages of the sketchbook as being relevant to this design project (though does not specify which pages), and notes that the remaining 48 pages are for the Cone table project (see AP148.S1.1971.PR04). The accompanying original folder in which Poli included the loose sketches and notes was titled "Lampada Floss | Tavolo a Cono". The technical drawing is stamped Superstudio, with the address on Bellosguardo in Florence. Also included is a photocopy of a photograph of Alessandro Poli and the lamp prototype.
