The Gherkin lamp has been conceived by Norman Foster on the base of his design for the 30 St. Mary Axe building in London, actually one of the most outstanding landmarks of contemporary architecture and the capital’s first environmental skyscraper.
This lighting project is meant to embody the very spirit and intensity of the original building in a transfigured form and function, and not merely as a model in scale.
The production method is the highly specialised technique of mouth blown triplex glass by Murano Masters following the ancient traditions of their craft.
Table lamp with triplex mouth blown acid etched glass.
Chromed metal base.
