    I've always lusted after this 1968 lamp ("Ruspa") by Gae Aulenti:

    ^ Oh yes [​IMG] ...I've always liked it too

    ...and of course the Pipistrello -- I've loved it since I was about 10.

    I do own a Rimorchiatore lamp by her (the coloured glass version) from Fontana Arte:

    Sorry about the photo ...it's the only one I could find on the net.

    Interesting, I've never seen the colored glass version. I've always admired the all-white enamelled metal version.

    Even though Aulenti is one of my favorite designers, I've never owned any of her pieces. The Ruspa (particularly the "quad" version that I posted above, which is by far my favorite) is out of my price range, but I've debated many times about purchasing a Pileo lamp:

    I'm a 60s/70s Artemide collector, and so this piece would fit in perfectly with my other stuff. Alas, I prefer the floor-lamp version of the Pileo, but the white plastic of the column on which the lamp sits is almost always yellowed.

    What Artemide classics do you own spertia?


    Let's see, currently I have the following:

    - Toga chairs (two white, one black)
    - Midas chairs (two white)
    - Giano Vano side tables (two black)
    - Demetrio table (white, coffee-table size)
    - Bacco bar/table (black)
    - Eco lamp (white)
    - Boalum lamp

    In the past I also have owned Selene chairs, a Stadio table, stacking Demetrio tables, Dalu lamp, Teti lamps/scones, Spyros ashtray, Pallade lamp, Efebino children's chairs....

    I think I actually have more vintage Artemide than Kartell pieces at this point. I would love to get some more high-end 60s/70s Artemide lamps (Pileo, Nesso, Lesbo, Saffo) but obviously I've been more focused on furniture.

    These are really good -- to be honest, there is not much from B&B that excites me ...but I really like Urquiola's work.

    Good thing you got the version without arms. The quality is atrocious on how the arms arm attached and they will end up wobbling all the time. A plus for the chair is that it's relatively more comfortable than you'd initially think. The gas mechanism is OK, not bad for the pricepoint.
