Another visionary and futurist floor lamp design by Brotto in 1959.
Today, on Esperia’s 70+1 anniversary, “6038” takes on a new life with a new edition made of chromed metal and glass plates.
"It is still the same design, with a completely new look."
Whenever Brotto visited Esperia to oversee the progress in developing new models, he stayed in the Piazza del Duomo in the nearby town of San Gimignano.
“6038” was conceived there, inspired by the towers of the “Medieval Manhattan”. Those same towers also inspired Architect Minoru Yamasaki for the construction of the World Trade Center in NY.
Original version in black metal, plexiglass and red base.
The Italian photographer Tony Vaccaro, commissioned by Life magazine to present a preview of the project to New Yorkers, spent a few days in the company of the Japanese architect. “There was already something Italian in the project of the Towers. Yamasaki was inspired by Palazzo del Doge in Venice and the towers of San Gimignano: so he explained to me. The photos were then published by LIFE on 22 March 1969”.
