Very rare floor lamp Capacio designed by Fulvio Ferrari for his own company Solka B. Capacio was produced in two versions: vitrified brass and chromed steel. This piece is in vitrified brass.

As you can read in our interview with Fulvio Ferrari, Capacio was the second lamp he designed. For this model Ferrari used already existing components which were used in other industries, like the pincers that are used in chemical laboratories.

The lamp is in fairly good vintage condition. The electrical wire needs to be checked and probably replaced. The lamp has patina on several places, such as on the base of the lamp (see photos).
