Magic mushrooms

To own an Artemide lamp is to tap directly into a piece of design history. Founded in 1960 by Ernesto Gismondi, the Milanese company has been responsible for wildly creative lighting concepts for over sixty years. In fact, 1972’s ‘Tizio’ design by Richard Sapper – the first to use a halogen bulb outside of the automotive industry – is now in the permanent collection at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, whilst 2012’s origami-like ‘IN-EI’ light, created in partnership with Issey Miyake, now resides in London’s Victoria & Albert Museum. Channelling the playful and curvaceous style details of the 1960s, its mushroom-shaped Nessino desk lamp is the perfect way to introduce a retro accent to any interior.
