Golconda Lamp Design by Luca Nichetto for Established & Sons


After the lamps and Lady Pipe, Golconda presents a brand new collaboration between Luca Nichetto and the English publisher, Established & Sons.

Inspired by the eponymous painting by Magritte, the Italian designer draws from the clean lines of his play, as well as the rounded shape of the lampshade, a nod to the famous bowler hat that marks the works of the artist.

Golconda also plays on the contrast between the fine and slender conical base, and an upper rotating and more massive, thus decentering light.

This is a new creation of unique Venetian designer, especially after the unusual Stewie lamp (Foscarini).
