The Model 1243 ceiling lamp, or flush mount, is a remarkable piece of mid-century modern design by the renowned manufacturer Stilnovo in Italy in 1960. This large ceiling lamp, with its distinctive spaceship-like form, exemplifies the futuristic aesthetic characteristic of the era. Crafted from black and white painted aluminum, it features a striking copper inner shade that adds warmth and contrast to the design. One of the lamp’s most unique elements is the five round holes that house the sockets, enhancing its space-age appeal and ensuring an even distribution of light. True to Stilnovo’s attention to detail and quality, the lamp is finished with the typical Stilnovo hardware and bears the original Stilnovo sticker inside the shade, attesting to its authenticity.


The lamp is in good original condition, retaining its original patina on the brass inner shade, which adds a layer of historical charm. This piece is not only a functional lighting solution but also a collector’s item, published in the original Stilnovo Catalogue from the 1960s, underscoring its significance in the history of modern design. Whether placed in a contemporary setting or a vintage-inspired space, the Model 1243 ceiling lamp is sure to be a conversation starter, embodying the innovative spirit of mid-century Italian design.


This lamp is checked in our own atelier, cleaned and is also suitable for use in the USA.
