Luxury Design, Past & Present
Unique Pendant Light by Afra & Tobia Scarpa. Like new, comes in original box. Chrome plated metal and glass diffuser lens. The Nictea ceiling fixture was one of the first models ever produced by the famous Italian lighting company Flos. Production of this groundbreaking elaborate model has ceased long ago. Circa 1961. Though this light was originally conceived in white - hence the name Nictea - the chromium plated version is the rarest nowadays. Please also see our other listings for two other copies in white and the similar Fior di Loto pendants. Literature: G. Gramigna, Repertorio 1950/1980 (Milano 1985), p. 175.
