Model 8,5 table lamp with optic fibres designed by Jürgen Fischer for Zanotta in 1969.

As described by Fulvio and Napoleone Ferrari in their book on Italian lighting: “Table lamp radiating diffused light. Twenty thousand optic fibres form the light diffusion hemisphere giving the effect of a starry dome. The light element is contained in the base. Manufactured in chrome metal and optic fibres.”

Rare piece.

Another well-known model by Zanotta is the 7+ lamp designed by Theodore Waddell and Dante Bandini.
