Gatto Modernist Table Lamp by Flos Lighting - Castiglioni Design Classic



Gatto Modernist Table Lamp by Flos Lighting - Castiglioni Design Classic! Fans of modern lighting and mid century modern design will love FLOS's Gato Lamp. The Gatto lamp was designed by Achille Castiglioni for Flos in 1960.



The magnificent Gatto Piccolo Table Lamp is a classic! Designed by the wonderful Achille Castiglioni in 1960 for Flos. This brilliant table lamp looks wonderful whether its switched-on or switched-off. White powder coated internal steel structure sprayed with a unique "cocoon" resin to create the diffuser which is then protected by a transparent sprayed on finish.
