Elio Martinelli 2144 Mappamondo floor lamp Itlay 1968





The Model 2144 floor lamp, also known as ‘Mappamondo,’ is a rare and impressive lighting piece designed by Elio Martinelli, produced by his own company, Martinelli Luce, in Italy in 1968. This XL version takes the distinctive design elements of Martinelli’s iconic Serpente floor lamp and scales them up for a bold and captivating presence. At its core, the Mappamondo lamp features a sleek white-painted tubular metal frame that supports two large white plastic opal shades. These dual shades are designed to create a harmonious glow, delivering a soft and diffused light that fills the surrounding space with a warm ambiance. The lamp’s towering height and substantial dimensions make it an ideal choice for spaces where you want to make a statement without compromising on elegance and simplicity.


The white-painted metal frame provides both stability and a clean aesthetic that complements the opal shades. The use of opal plastic for the shades is not only visually appealing but also practical, as it ensures even light distribution and creates a soothing atmosphere. The design’s smooth curves and understated details are characteristic of Martinelli’s modernist approach, lending an air of sophistication to any setting. In terms of condition, this Mappamondo floor lamp is in very good original shape, which is remarkable considering its age. The white shades show no signs of discolouration, maintaining their crisp and clean appearance. This exceptional condition reflects the quality of craftsmanship and the careful maintenance that the lamp has received over the years0


The Mappamondo floor lamp is a stunning addition to any interior, whether it’s a contemporary living room, a chic office, or an art gallery. Its rare status and striking design make it a coveted piece among collectors and design enthusiasts alike. If you’re seeking a floor lamp that combines iconic design with a grand scale, the Mappamondo by Elio Martinelli is an excellent choice, offering both visual impact and timeless style.
