A hand-blown amber coloured glass Fungo table lamp designed by Massimo Vignelli at the start of his impressive career in design and executed by Murano glass specialist Venini. This is the largest size of the Fungo table lamp (for the difference between medium size and large see picture).

If you would like to read more about the cooperation between Vignelli and Venini: in the Discover section of our website you find an interesting article on the first joint project of both masters of design, which was actually this Fungo table lamp, and a second article on the other lamps Vignelli later designed for Venini.

The lamp is described in ‘Repertorio del Design Italiano 1950-2000’ by Giuliana Gramigna on Page 49 (1956).
