Design, Interior Design, Italians do it better

Vela Lamp by Mario Alessiani

View all 6 Photos

The Vela lamp was designed by Mario Alessiani for the Italian company Offiseria. Handmade of last-cut metal, the simple table or desk lamp is composed of a cylinder and an “L”-shaped partial shade. Subtly finished in white or in a soft shade of orange, green, or gray, the minimalist, unique design piques interest without taking over the room.
