Description 1950s Giuseppe Ostuni 'Ochetta' wall or table lamp for O-Luce. An extremely rare and surprisingly utilitarian lamp executed in red painted metal and brass by one of the most refined Italian designers of the midcentury. A highly adaptable light, the legs of the lamp can slide up or down for easy adjustability, while the shade rotates freely on Ostuni's patented ball joint system.
