Subtle, organic forms and gentle, diffused light characterize the Stemlite Floor Lamp – a hidden gem from the space race era and now a natural addition to the GUBI Collection.
Legendary designer Bill Curry’s ‘total look’ lamp was an innovative rethinking of the traditional lamp and captured the zeitgeist of West Coast America of the 1960s. Combining new techniques, bold aesthetics and a pioneering approach to modular design, the Stemlite became an iconic symbol of this optimistic era. And it is these same attributes which make the Stemlite just as relevant today for home, commercial or hospitality settings.
The gentle glow of the frosted glass globe creates an atmosphere which complements both modern and traditional interiors. Underneath the globe is a simple rotary dimmer switch, giving intuitive control over the light intensity. The simple, slender, tulip-like stem is available in Black Chrome, Red Black, and Pebble Gray.
With the Stemlite Collection’s modular approach, you can mix and match the complementary range of configurations available. Two heights of Table Lamp are available which can be paired with each other, or combined with the Stemlite Floor Lamps and Pendant.
American designer Bill Curry (1927-1971) captured the zeitgeist of the 1960s and ‘70s with his iconic lamp designs. From his unique Los Angeles vantage point at the meeting point of art, design and engineering, during an era defined by the space race, pop culture and a new forward-looking optimism, he was recognized as one of California’s leading designers by the time he died at the age of just 43.
