In the 1950’s famous Italian artists like Gino Sarfatti, Ettore Sottsass and Gio Ponti started to use plastics (acrylic) in their ligthing designs. In France especially designers like Pierre Guariche, Boris Lacroix and Joseph Andre Motte, all employed by the company of Disderot, applied this new material. This hard to find pendant lamp shows all the characteristics of their forward looking design approach by exploiting the properties of the material to it’s fullest.
