Designer: Gae Aulenti (for Harvey Guzzini)
I can’t think of an object that captures the spirit of the 70’s better than the Quadrifoglio lamp. Recently, I kept catching sight of it in various places. I may have seen it when I was a child while visiting relatives in Italy but one thing is certain, the design is very familiar to me. Somehow it reminds me of the works of German illustrator Anne Hofer and famous French childhood program “L’île aux enfants”:
