The new Elmetto lamp in pastel pink and blue is part of the Martinelli Luce’s remake project of timeless icons such as this lamp designed in 1976 by Elio Martinelli and still unchanged today in aesthetic form, but updated with new colors.
After the red-ruby version for 40 years anniversary, presented in last Milano Design Week and the classic pop colors of the original lamp, Martinelli Luce proposes today the pastel pink and blue variations, inspired by the trends launched by Pantone colors of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity, tones that will be protagonists of the upcoming fashion collections for 2017.
Born as a night lamp, today the new Elmetto lamp perfectly interprets the desire of ‘soft’ anti-stress colors in modern life, two cozy and enveloping tones to choose… even for the rooms of the little ones.
The lamp in its essential simplicity, which resembles the shape of the typical metallic military hat, was reinterpreted in an ironic way by Elio Martinelli.
As with all the great design classics, Elmetto remains – even after 40 years since its creation – small, functional but of great character. Elmetto has a sign that has always marked it: a switch in the central part of the base, easy to find even at night, and a reflector that moves with a simple hand gesture.
