La Ruspa is one of the most beautiful modern table lamps in our collection.
La Ruspa was designed by Italian designer Gae Aulenti for
Martinelli Luce in 1967-68. Drawing inspiration from the design of the
arm of an excavator, Gae Aulenti created a remarkable sculptural table lamp
with a spatial appearance. Uniquely beautiful, the iconic La Ruspa is
considered to be a study in futurism and heralded the start of the
Italian Space Age design movement which ran between 1968-1972.
La Ruspa fulfills that essential criterion of good modern design which is
that it is both stylish and functional. It is justifiably regarded as
one of the most exceptional icons of Italian design.
La Ruspa has an adjustable, articulated arm body structure
in extruded aluminum, lacquered in white. Its swiveling
reflectors provide an infinite number of ways to direct
the light. La Ruspa provides both direct- and indirect illumination.
