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

Bud pendant hanging lamps

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.”

Tiffany lamps are generally considered to have come from the Art Nouveau movement which began in Europe in the late nineteenth century. peacock lamp
