Tapira desk lamp designed by Gianemilio, Piero and Anna Monti (G.P.A. Monti) and produced by Fontana Arte, during the 1970s.

The lamp is made of plastic and contains an opaline glass hemisphere. Above this glass hemisphere are two wings that can be turned outwards independently of each other, and by doing so the light intensity can be adjusted.

There are switches under both black round details, with both switches the (only) lightbulb can be switched on or off. The lamp has an inlay to store some small items.

The lamp is in good vintage condition. Rare piece.
