    This is another of the lamps designed by Ricard for metalarte in the 1960s and 1970s.

    I cannot but admiring its simplicity and the very inteligent effect of the darker stripe at the middle of the lamp. How he got it is very simple: the bottom part of the lamp is just like a bowl with a slightly wider part at the top whereas the top one fits jut on the wider part of it, so the darker stripe we see is the result of the light going through two layers of plastic. One can't appreciate that when the lamp is off, that's why I took this pic with the lamp on.
