A modern design which also nods to its traditional influences can be a difficult thing to create. The Melampo Mega lamp is just that – a recognisable silhouette realised in thoroughly modern manner.
A 2002 design by French designer Adrien Gardère, the lamp is nothing but slick. The base is crafted from aluminium, coated in zamac – a zinc alloy – and topped with a silk satin fabric shade in a delicate pale grey hue.
