Light years ahead: Iconic Daphine lamp celebrates 45th anniversary with limited edition

Italian lighting specialist Lumina is celebrating with the launch of a collector’s edition in an inedited colour finish, limited only to 226 numbered and autographed pieces.

The Daphine is characterized by a minimalist design, yet despite its reduced dimensions aims to create the perfect light.  

The Daphine can now be found in the permanent collections of major design and contemporary art museums, including the Brooklyn Museum and Judd Foundation in New York, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, Die Neue Sammlung in Munich and The Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

Daphine is composed of three basic elements: a slender articulated arm, a small adjustable diffuser and a transformer, which is deliberately unconcealed, on the base. 

The commercial success of the Daphine led Tommaso Cimini to found Lumina in 1980, in Sedriano, near Milan, Italy.

Over the year’s the Daphine range has expanded to include a floor lamp and todayis offered with a halogen light source as its original version, or LED. The transformer and the base are always in black while the body is available in various colours and finishes including a soft-touch black, matt white, matt red, matt yellow, anodized nickel and metallic bronze.

To celebrate its 45 years, Lumina proposes Daphine in an inedited colour finish limited only to 226 numbered and autographed pieces.

Lumina  lamps are sold in 104 countries through an international network of select multi-brand retailers.
