Bud and Bud Grande hanging lamps | Studio 6G | Harvey Guzzini, Italy | 1968

Bud pendant hanging lamps

Above:  Bud pendant hanging lamps in white.  This lamp was in production from 1968 to 1986. Sizes 350mm diameter by 310mm height and 460mm diameter by 410 mm height. Image source:  Guzzini Archives.

From the Guzzini archive (a terrific resource, available here), the aim of the lamps in this group was to produce “a family of products (hanging, floor, table) used in the various rooms of the house (from the bedroom to the kitchen to the living room) of different types, coordinated formally.”  Amongst the technical innovation of the lamp series is that it was amongst the first to join plastic and metal by assembling with cyanoacrylate  glues.  Cyanoacrylate is “superglue.”

The Bud Grande is a member of the Bud family of lamps that features the Bud pendant hanging lamp in two sizes, the Bud ceiling lamp, the Clan table lamp, the Flash floor lamp, and the Lucerna adjustable floor lamp.
