Artemide Holiday Gifts
Eclisse by Artemide

Eclisse, designed by Vico Magistretti in 1965, won the Compasso d’Oro in 1967 and became the representative of Italian design in the world. Eclisse is an avant-garde balance between form and function, design and utility. The basis of the concept lies in its functionality of adjusting light intensity through its rotating inner shade that “eclipses” the light source. In fact, with a fixed outer shell and a movable inner shell, the lamp can provide direct or diffused light. A table lamp can also be wall-mounted.

Simplicity and concept are the basis of design and architecture. A good design lasts fifty years, the rest are temporary things”

The collaboration with Artemide certainly marked important stages in Magistretti’s design career. Vico Magistretti is one of the first designers with whom Ernesto Gismondi began a long dialogue that resulted in iconic products that are still contemporary today, such as Eclisse, Chimera and Teti as well as furniture pieces including the Selene chair and Demetrio coffee table.

The new exclusive colors that will be available from the Artemide Holiday Gifts are made using an innovative and sustainable metal vacuum deposition process. The painted metal body is available in black, gold, copper or mirror with on/off switch. The PVD versions of Eclisse are a perfect example of how Artemide’s research into materials, finishes and processes is strongly oriented towards sustainable solutions. In the design choice, the environmental impact is a discriminating factor that imposes itself on the final aesthetic result.
