Luigi Massoni and Luciano Buttura designed these Conchiglia desk lamps for Harvey Guzzini in 1968.

This surprising example of design has a metal structure that holds the Plexiglas shade and conceals the wire.

With its removable plastic base that can function for small stationary, Conchiglia was originally destined for office usage.

Harvey Guzzini produced the lamp from 1968 until 1980.

A set of these desk lamps, and especially when both contain the removable plastic base, is rare. It is only available as a set.
