Minimal modern French interior design in Marseille features Gae Aulenti's Pipistrello Lamp.  We have a thing for modern lighting and we are obsessive collectors of mostly Italian lighting from the 1960's and 1970's.  One of the lamps we love is the Pipistrello lamp, an iconic Italian design classic included in several museum collections such as the permanent collection of the MoMA New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art New York and the Museum des Arts Decoratives in Montreal. The Pipistrello Table Lamp was designed by the Italian designer Gae Aulenti for Martinelli Luce Italy in 1966. Gae Aulenti's Pipistrello lamp is considered to be a masterpiece of mid century modern Italian space agedesign. Always stylish, effortlessly elegant and uniquely beautiful, the Pipistrello lamp is a modern classic that evokes a minimal and refined atmosphere. The Pipistrello lamp is a modernist light vessel to be treasured forever. Its gracious shape make it an easy choice for any modern interior.  French architect and interior designer, Fernand Pouillon, used the Pipistrello Lamp for the interior of this beautiful white modern apartment in Marseille, France.  The clean lines and chic minimalist style of the interior are complimented by striking views from the living room of the Vieux Port of Marseille and the Notre Dame de La Garde church.
