The Flos Snoopy table lamp by Achille Castiglioni is a superbly executed work of art/lamp; it features our favorite material; Italian Carrara marble. Carrara is a town in the Italian Alps. The marble (Michelangelo's favorite) from this area has been used in Italy since Roman times.

Snoopy was designed in 1967 by Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. Snoopy is a unique and fun table lamp that provides direct light. The table lamp has an enamelled black metal reflector, white Italian Carrara marble base and integral touch dimmer.



Table luminaire with direct light and variable light intensity. The Flos Snoopy lamp consists of a cylindrical base in white carrara marble, angled relative to the slab, which is blocked by the holder, a disc of transparent glass. This glass is very thick and has a hole in ground to support a lightweight aluminum reflector painted over with three holes for cooling. The lamp, apparently a volume not balanced, it is actually very stable, for proper weight distribution of the marble base, offset by a thick sheet of glass. It is still in production today with the dimmer on a marble base.
