Andrea Bellosi Arc en Ciel lamp Studio Alchimia 1978





True postmodern table lamp ‘Arc en Ciel’ designed by Andrea Bellosi and manufactured by Studio Alchimea in Italy in 1978. The lamp consists of two arch-shaped sides made of Carrara marble, along with a marble base with rounded edges. Hanging in the middle is a half-shaped metal circle that acts as the lampshade and it can be adjusted to give either a narrow or wide beam of light. When you turn on the halogen light it projects a full spectrum of rainbow colors onto the wall or ceiling. Therefore this lamp isn’t just a source of light but also an extraordinary decorative piece that’s sure to bring a smile to your face. The lamp is in good original condition.

Studio Alchimia, founded by Alessandro Guerriero and Bruno Gregori in Milan, Italy, aimed to challenge Modernism’s rationality by embracing irony and metaphor in design. Positioned between radical design groups and the Memphis group, Alchimia focused on transforming historical designs, banal objects, and kitsch into new, visually striking creations. They explored various mediums including furniture, fashion, jewelry, and graphic design. Early furniture collections like Bau.Haus Uno and Due were handmade reinterpretations of historical models with added colorful elements. Alchimia also collaborated with Zanotta to mass-produce some designs, bridging craftsmanship with industry. Notable designers associated with Alchimia included Andrea Branzi, Ettore Sottsass, and Paola Navone.
