Snoopy lamp

by Archile and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for Flos

Snoopy was designed in 1967 by the Castiglioni brothers. Achille and Pier designed it to last; its base is made with the finest marble you can find in the town of Carrara Italy. The famous Snoopy cartoon character was the inspiration for its shade. After half a century; the Snoopy Lamp by Flos has lost none of its shine and has remained as exceptionally attractive as on the day it was designed. Snoopy certainly is a keeper; an icon to be passed on generation after generation. A quality made Italian icon with timeless appeal that you will cherish now and every day to come. Buy it for the same reason you play Miles Davis on the original six-eye pressing. It's that kind of cool. 

The Snoopy table lamp was designed by the grand master of Italian modern design; Achille Castiglioni. Achille Castiglioni designed the Snoopy lamp for Flos in 1967. This is one of the undisputed mid century modern lighting classics. 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. The Flos Snoopy lamp is an extraordinary modern lamp with timeless appeal. This beloved icon of modern design is a customer favorite and a top staff pick at Stardust. Snoopy is perfect as an accent lamp in the living room or the bedroom.

The Snoopy lamp is a unique and fun table lamp that provides mostly direct reflected downwards lighting. This beautiful table lamp has an enameled black metal reflector and a white Italian Carrara marble base. An integral touch dimmer switch (black button) is located in the marble base.
