Brought to life through sketches from the past, the Gubi Stemlite Wall Lamp has been out of production for decades, soon relaunched by Gubi. Beautifully curated from enduring materials, its curvaceous profile appears to sprout out of the wall, resulting in an organic expression that adapts to a broad range of existing interiors. Available in Black Chrome, it comprises a die-cast aluminium base, a steel arm evocative of a tulip stem, topped with the mouth-blown glass globe. Further enhanced via its LED technology and innovative dimmer switch, it diffuses an ambient light that can be adjusted to set the perfect mood. Part of the Gubi Stemlite collection.
American designer William ‘Bill’ Edwin Curry (1927-1971) captured the zeitgeist of the 1960s and ‘70s with his iconic lamp designs.
Beginning his career as a graphic designer and art director in the aero-tech industry, he launched his own home furnishings company, Design Line Inc in 1962. Credited with developing the first ‘total look’ lamp forms – eliminating the base-bulb-shade concept and instead exploiting the bare bulb in a playful, self-contained unit – he was recognized as one of California’s leading designers by the time he died at the age of just 43.
