Seletti Monkey Lamp Designed by Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba

View all 4 Photos

New from Seletti, the Monkey Lamp is a wild yet functional lighting design by the Italian designer Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba. Like in much of Malerba’s previous art and design (such as Sending Animals and Ale Plantana), the Monkey Lamp uses a naturalistic figure to explore relationships between people and animals. Here, the resulting trio of lamps has a human quality to its expression at the same time that it resembles something out of a science museum. Each of the three primates is quite detailed and poses sitting, standing, or hanging while holding an exposed LED bulb. Made of resin and hand-finished in white, the designs have a contemporary, consciously artistic quality to them as well. Comes in three different versions: sitting, standing and hanging. Find the item in Gessato’s shop.
