Description Rare and very special floor lamp, Totem, by Gae Aulenti for Stilnovo, 1970s. The lamp is meant to be used outdoor, but it can as well be used indoor.

We found the following description in a Stilnovo advertisement in Domus No. 538: "Totem is a lamp with a very precise and characteristic design, which is placed in natural spaces as a discreet but clearly identified presence. Its logical form, exquisitely crafted, plays by contrast with the compositional freedom of the natural elements, highlighting them and drawing evidence from them."

As indicated in the same advertisement this floor lamp was part of a range: "A system of outdoor lighting fixtures, particularly designed to withstand the effects of atmospheric conditions. It is available in different versions: wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted or stem-mounted, in different heights. It consists of an ABS tube, which supports one or two opal polycarbonate diffusers."

Our version has only for a short while been used outdoor, hence the condition is still good. The current electrical wiring is suitable for outdoor usage, but with a small adjustment it could be prepared for domestic usage.
