“Tau” pendant lamp for Artemide
This pendant lamp was designed by Sergio Mazza in 1960 and produced by Artemide, the company that he had founded together with Ernesto Gismondi in 1959. This lamp, known as "Tau", was one of the earliest designs of the company, as it was presented in 1960 to the XII Milan Triennale.
The lamp has a distinctive appearance, given by the combination of a black lacquered aluminum shade with a pressed, striped glass diffuser, jointed by a nickel-plated brass ring.
