Amber hand-blown Fungo table lamp (large) by Massimo Vignelli for Venini, 1950s
A hand-blown amber coloured glass Fungo table lamp designed by Massimo Vignelli at the start of his impressive career in design and executed by Murano glass specialist Venini.
These lamps were made in various sizes: This is the largest version, we have as well a medium high version in our collection (for the difference between both lamps see picture).
If you like to read more about the cooperation between Vignelli and Venini: in the Discover section of our website you find an interesting article on the first joint project of both masters of design, which was actually this Fungo table lamp, and a second article on the other lamps Vignelli later designed for Venini.
The lamp is described in 'Repertorio del Design Italiano 1950-2000' by Giuliana Gramigna on Page 49 (1956).
