50 candles for Coupé by Oluce

Happy Birthday to Coupé! The Coupé lamp was first designed half a century ago, in 1967 to be more precise, by Joe Colombo for Oluce. In conjunction with this occasion (and Christmas too), Coupé will be available in an exciting new limited edition.

Originally designed as a variation of the Spider lamp series, throughout the years Coupé has constantly renewed its appearance, becoming a true style icon: not only because Coupé received the International Design Award by the American Institute of Interior Designers of Chicago just over a year after it first appeared on the market, but especially because it was able to adapt to the changing times, reaching numerous goals. In fact, Coupé is now part of the permanent collections of many museums like the MoMA of New York and the Die Neue Sammlung Museum of Munich.

A classic piece such as this, in other words a design icon that was able to defy passing fads and fashions, had to be celebrated. And so, we have Coupé’s new freestanding version: a limited edition of 500 numbered pieces in gold finish, complete with a commemorative inscription.

A luxury gift to say the least, bound to turn the heads of real design addicts, just as we are. So, all that’s left to say is: Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas Coupé!
