Cobra, designed by Elio Martinelli in 1968 is 50 years old, but doesn't look it.
A lamp still in the catalogue today for the fascination it continues to exert for the public.
To celebrate Cobra's 50th birthday, we thought of a new color, Lacquer Red: a brilliant color, a symbol of fire, joy, strength, love, full of emotion... a color that underlines even more the strong personality of this lamp.
In the 1970s, Cobra had already been proposed in bright colors such as yellow, orange and red, but in a more orangey shade. Almost a revival to recall a lamp that fully expresses Martinelli Luce's design philosophy: simplicity, rigor, technology, dynamism.
A lamp that is still timely, even if it took several years for its innovative design to be appreciated despite its simple formal rigor, and its presence in some well-known movies is further proof of this.
