Joe Colombo lighting for oluce
While searching the web, looking for lighting manufacturers, I stumbled upon the well known Italian lighting firm oluce. I especially looked into the work Joe Colombo did for them. Classic designs, and still being produced, check them out here.
While I was already familiar with the work of Joe Colombo, I never realized he died at the early age of 41 in 1971 in Milan. While I am now 41, I realize in how little time he created great classic design icons.
In this post I wanted to highlight his lighting designs for oluce. I admire these for their basic shapes and mechanics, while still having exactly the right proportions and lighting possibilities.
