the age of design

arco lamp

a design classic, the original arco lamp from 1962 is housed in MoMA‘s permanent collection.  this lamp is kept from being ubiquitous on the design scene because it adapts so well – and though all the spaces here are quite clean-edged and modern, we’d love to see the arco in an ornate, wallpapered room.

buy the authentic version through DWR (at a hefty price tag), or scour craigslist, ebay, apartment therapy classifieds – you never know what may turn up!
