One of a few iconic pieces that I absolutely adore is the Nesso lamp. It was designed by Giancarlo Mattioli in 1967. It is said to be inspired by the Italian women’s belly button (those Italians….) It is featured in the 20th Century collection at the Metropolitan Museum of art. This lamp has been in continuous production for 40 years now. I own a reproduction of the larger and an authentic Nessino lamp, which is the smaller version of the Nesso.
