This lamp original idea was a pencil sketch Vico Magistretti drew on the back of a subway ticket. Thanks to its distinctive design, Eclisse is now an coveted collector’s item.
Hand-painted metal.
Eclisse is part of the permanent exhibition at the MoMA in New York, as well as of the Triennale del Design Museum in Milan and other museums.
The sticker label on the back of the lamp proves it was a limited edition of 100 pieces.

The last picture shows the famous metro ticket where Magistretti drew the very first Eclipse sketch.
