The Aspide Table Lamp was named after the Italian word for ‘asp’, referencing its sinuous, snake-like form. A coating of gleaming chrome gives Aspide a mirror-like surface that reflects the lamp’s own light. This high-shine brilliance that imbues the lamp with a feeling of preciousness as well as playfulness – in Frattini’s hands, glamor and whimsy can coexist in a single object.
The body of the lamp comprises large curved tubes of iron fitted to a specially engineered steel shaft. The shaft allows two different parts of the lamp – the neck and the head – to be rotated seamlessly around their own axes by as much as 350º, with an integrated stop. This simple and intuitive mechanism adjusts both the aesthetics and function of the lamp, giving the user the ability to easily control the light in their space, switching smoothly between task and accent lighting as they wish.
