Snoopy turns 50!

To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Snoopy, created in 1967 by the Castiglioni brothers and one of the most iconic and ironic table lamps in the history of design, Flos has produced a Limited Edition of 1.700 numbered pieces

The special edition brings back to light the first design for Snoopy, preserved at the Achille Castiglioni Foundation, which differs from the version found in the catalogue for the elegant matt black embossing powder finishing of its unmistakable snout-shaped reflector.

All the other details remain identical to the traditional model, as does the cylindrical base made from precious veined white marble, with a thick crystal glass disc fixed to it, and the three cooling holes that resemble a bowling ball grip.

 

Each lamp in the Limited Edition has a holographic label with its serial number, certifying it is an absolutely unique piece.

The marble base, that originally housed the on/off switch and an electronic dimmer to adjust the light brightness – a very innovative feature at the time-, still hosts the same functions through a high technological touch sensor dimmer.

Snoopy limited edition matt black is set to make history and represents a unique opportunity for both collectors and enthusiasts.
