1967 Periscopio by Danilo e Corrado Aroldi creates Stilnovo.
“…Periscopio began with the use of a tube that was strongly based on Cornalux light bulb, with its particular articulated form. The idea of this type of articulation was created in the 1960s, the period of the space race, with its space-like outfits and their black rubber lined knees and elbows … these particularly struck me and therefore I decided to use this idea to line them. The articulated part lets the bulb rotate and move in different directions. The wide range of colours of tubes available in that period meant that there was a very interesting array of colours. At the beginning of the 70s the MoMA in New York asked me to provide it for its permanent exhibition on design. The Periscopio subsequently went on to be a much copied object.”
Corrado Aroldi, from an interview given (March 2013) at Corrado Aroldi’s Studio.
The re-release of Perioscopio was made possible by the close collaboration between Corrado Aroldi and Franco Pagliarini who resolved the problems of the Cornalux lamp together. The planning of new solution for light sources gives Periscopio a new look.
Adjustable lamp both horizontally and vertically, with rotary action on the axis of the arm. Different versions planned: both for the table and the floor.
White, Black and Silver.
