Evelyn lamp

Evelyn is a lamp that was initially developed with Driade in the late nineties for the Shore Club Hotel in Miami and was then redeveloped in 2015. Originally designed in three distinct but complementary versions: a floor lamp (a lampadaire), a wall mounted lamp (an applique) and a ceiling mounted lamp (a plafonnier). It was also produced in the three bright colours of yellow, red and green, inspired by the Art Deco South Beach style. Evelyn consists of a single-arm floor lamp with an adjustable metal lampshade in the classic frustum form of a cone (the vertex of which has been cut parallel to its lower edge), a clear reference to classic domestic lighting of fifties design, such as that by Gino Sarfatti in enamelled aluminium. The grey curved and tubular arm is set into a round base, while a pivot holds the double-layered lampshade in the form of a truncated cone with a green outer layer. All of these elements are made from anodised aluminium.
