Space Age Italian Design

The Paracarro lamp. This ultra rare lamp (out of production since the mid 1970s) was designed by Italian designer Sergio Asti for Bilumen in 1971.  The lamps displays the fluid forms of the Italian Space Age design movement (we consider this the period from 1968 to 1972).  Less than a hundred of these were actually manufactured by Bilumen. Few of these must have survived and this lamp is now notoriously hard to find. We spotted one a few years ago in Milano at Daal Gallery.
