Nesso table lamp is an international icon of futuristic and democratic design. Part of the reissued “Modern Classics” line, designed by Giancarlo Mattioli and Gruppo Architetti Urbanisti Città Nuova, in the glamorous era of the 1960s.



It was a marvel of ABS thermoplastic injection molding when it was first introduced in 1967, bringing industrial materials and methods to home and office environments. A splash of color and a design inspired by nature, Nesso stems from Artemide’s visionary identity. Its iconic curves become a true collector’s item, an expressive piece of internationally acclaimed caliber and fame. An iconic piece that has staged its presence in several landmarks, Nesso is considered a valuable work of art. An “icon” of design, it is part of the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art.
