A super rare first production Fato lamp designed by Gio Ponti and produced by Artemide in 1967. What sets it apart from the later versions is that the early versions of the Fato lamp offered a unique hanging option, featuring cleverly placed holes at the back, so it had two points of use. However, this idea was discontinued shortly after. Another distinct characteristic lies in the positioning of the cable outlet on the sides, which sets it apart from the later models. This adds a fascinating touch to the lamp’s evolution over time. The Fato lamp is a true modernist design, a white square frame with folded geometric metal forms creating light and dark, screened and clear, all enclosed in a square frame: it is both a stunning light object and a beautiful lamp.
