Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002) is the son of a sculptor and after his architectural studies he started to study forms, techniques and new materials. In his long career, he has not only designed lighting, but also furniture, appliances, home accessories and so much more. At first sight his designs seem to be composed of objects found by chance. His experimental attitude can certainly be found in this. Yet he manages to design original and playful design pieces with a practical undertone time and time again.
The Achille brothers and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni continue to surprise us. The Snoopy lamp is one of their best known and most popular designs. This table lamp was primarily meant to be playful because life is serious enough. Don't you think? The well-known cartoon character Snoopy is easy to recognize in the shade of the table lamp. The marble base gives the whole a very luxurious appearance and really completes the design. A glass plate on the base supports the lampshade. He seems to float above it. The snoopy table lamp is and will always remain a classic.
