he Serpente lamp, designed by Elio Martinelli, is half a century old. The Serpente lamp draws its main inspiration from the natural world and simple geometrical shapes. However, the brand Martinelli Luce waited a long time before finally debueing this product on the market. In fact, it was only after a succession of prototypes and the arrival of new moulding techniques that the final version with adjustable arm was available to the general public. The Serpente lamp is truly iconic and dramatic piece, always in the best of shape even after 50 years.
