Memphis Style Floor Lamp by KOCH and LOWY, 1980s

Sold out

Black and yellow floor lamp in the style of Memphis by Piotr Sierakowski for Koch and Lowy. Tall on its tripod legs and three bold, cartoon feet, it is a playful design that asserts its place in room. It casts a vast light, dimmable by the ball switch on the shade. A bright demonstration of American's reflection on Italian Memphis Milano style.
