The Lesbo table lamp was designed by the Italian designer Angelo Mangiarotti for Artemide Italy in 1967. The concept behind Angelo Mangiarotti's Lesbo lamp was to "evoke architecture as a pool of water". Before you go thinking too much about that Lesbo name, you should know that Angelo Mangiarotti named it Lesbos after the ancient Greek Island "Lesbos". Despite the white opal glaze this lamp diffuses much light onto the table. The Artemide Lesbo lamp is made of hand blown Murano glass and its base is made with polished metal to disguise the light source.
