$ 14,000
  • Description
    Paolo Portoghesi, main reference for Postmodernism in Italy, designed a building in Rome with his collegue Vittorio Gigliotti, named after Pasquale Papanice, enterpreneur who commissioned it. Casa Papanice (1966-1969) became a symbol of italian Postmodernism and inspired many other architects, intelletuals and filmmakers. As for his interest in Roman Baroque, Portoghesi chose the curved line as the main pattern of the building, both on the outside and in the inside. Furniture inside was indeed based and realized on the same design grammar as we can easily see in this floor lamp named "Helga". Created together with Silvio Bilangione and produced by Fumagalli in 1967, the lamp is made in white lacquered wood.
