Here we have a wonderful 1970's Ernesto Gismondi Sintesi floor lamp for Artemide in all original black enamel with pivoting head & anodized aluminum hood. The Sintesi lamp was created & designed in 1976 by Artemide founder Ernesto Gismondi and it is the epitome of Italian modern minimal design. This Sintesi lamp features a pierced pivoting head, adjustable anodized aluminum shade/hood, foot switch power and it is all original including the enamel. It is emboss signed with Artemide - Sintesi Terra - Ernesto Gismondi - Patent Pending - Made in Italy on the bottom of the base. This is the floor lamp model designed by Gismondi in 1976, we believe this one dates to the 1977-78 period as it has the shade and does not use a Cornalux bulb.
Ernesto Gismondi co-founded Milanese Studio Artemide with Sergio Mazza in 1960, he has received numerous awards for his modern designs. The Sintesi Lamp can be found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City in the Modern and Contemporary Art department. This Gismondi lamp is in very nice condition as it was in storage for many years, everything is functioning correctly & the aluminum hood is in super condition.
There evidence of light rust under the enamel in areas of the base, there are a few sporadic scratches or scuffs on the the head and shaft.
