Designed by Giancarlo Mattioli and Gruppo Architetti Urbanisti Città Nuova, in the 1960s, Nesso is an international icon of retro design. Part of the Artemide Modern Classics reissued line, it was a marvel of ABS thermoplastic injection-molding when first introduced in 1967 thus bringing industrial materials and methods to the home and office environments.
Inspired by nature, the shape references the mushroom with the cup illuminating the light source and is ideal for use in the office, living room or workplace lobby. An icon of design and one of Artemide's most recognisable designs, Nesso is part of the permanent collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art.
The Nesso table lamp is available in white and orange.
